Panel discussion with Dr Eric Bunn and Dr Bryn Funnekotter, research scientists, Kings Park Science, and Susan Whiteley PhD student, about their biotechnology and genetics experiments on how to conserve some of WA's rarest and believed-to-be-extinct plants.

Eric Bunn explains their research's main focus is on biodiversity conservation of WA flora. Bryn Funnekotter also discusses the methods they use.

Susan Whiteley, PhD student, explains their work, noting on the different results they get by using different plants and chemicals.
