Yes, this has its origins in getting the Glossy Black Cockatoo listed as a threatened species in the ACT, as re-vegetation of casuarina is one of the key recommended actions.  At the time the Glossy was under consideration for listing, I took the opportunity at a Roundtable meeting with the former Chief Minister (Jon Stanhope) where a program of restoration plantings was discussed to push the case for the Glossies.  The Arboretum subsequently picked this up also and has planted a block of the casuarina.   This has also been a very good public awareness raising initiative.  The paper nominating  the Glossy is expected to be published in the next Canberra Bird Notes.
