Critically endangered Wollemi pines saved from flames

Firefighters in Australia have completed a ’brave and secret mission’ to save the Wollemi Pines, an ancient tree species commonly referred to as living fossils. The ’dinosaur trees’ were saved by deploying air tankers to drop fire retardant in a protective ring around the trees while an irrigation system was set up to provide moisture for the grove.
