National Geographic: Wollemi Pine

National Geographic Presents - Botanical Find of Century.

Living Fossil Wollemi Pine Available for First Time in North America.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY WOLLEMI

This dinosaur-era tree that was believed to have been extinct for 2 million years will be available for a limited time to U.S. residents who can help ensure its survival. National Geographic is introducing the Wollemi Pine, which was discovered in Australia's Blue Mountains by New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service Officer David Noble. Fewer than 100 of the trees exist in the wild, which has prompted extensive efforts to propagate the species.

Founded in 1888, the National Geographic Society is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations in the world and reaches more than 350 million people worldwide each month. National Geographic has funded more than 8,000 scientific research projects and supports an education program combating geographic illiteracy.
