Native Seed Collection
Our team have been collecting seed throughout Western Australia for a long time (with over 30 years combined experience), therefore we know where the plants are, or are most likely to be, the optimum time for picking and the most efficient collection method.
Where we collect
Our range is expanding every year. We have covered the South West coastline from Black Point right up to Point Peron and scoured creeks, rivers and ridge-lines across the Swan Coastal Plain, over the Darling Scarp into the Wheatbelt and north into the Pilbara.
We run annual seed collection projects for multiple clients, offering seed bank services in our climate controlled storage facility.
Cape Life is RIAWA accredited.
All Cape Life staff hold licenses issued by the Department of Parks and Wildlife and we adhere to strict protocols and guidelines, taking into account seed abundance, maturity and fragile or sensitive areas/ species. Wherever possible we recommend locally sourced provenance seed for rehabilitation projects.
