A tree planting ceremony in the Norfolk Island National Park was a first in the history of the island. The tree 1/20 was planted at Palm Glen and is called ‘Sustainability’.
It was planted in honour of the visit to the island of the Leadership Fellows from Comoros, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, Kiribati, Tonga and Palau. They were funded by the Australian Government, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, to attend the Sustainable Islands Workshops conducted by EcoNorfolk Foundation Inc Limited, in partnership with the University of Sydney.
While on Norfolk Island the group stayed at A-Frame Chalets @ Mokutu.
The photograph shows the group sitting with their tree. It will be protected in a unique and picturesque sub-tropical rainforest found nowhere else in the world. The majestic and iconic Norfolk Island pine is a keystone species of this distinctive forest ecosystem.
Each participant received a numbered certificate with their name and island identified.
