The Jervis Bay Leek Orchid is listed as Endangered under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and as Endangered (Schedule 1, Part 1) on the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995. It is a ground orchid that grows to between 30 and 50 cm in height and flowers in early November. The species occurs only in NSW, where it is confined to three areas, Kinghorne Point, Wowly Gully near the town of Calalla Bay, and near the township of Vincentia. These three areas are in the vicinity of Jervis Bay, south-east of Nowra on the NSW South Coast.
This document constitutes the formal National Recovery Plan for the Jervis Bay Leek Orchid (Prasophyllum affine). It considers the conservation requirements of the species across its known range, identifies the future actions to be taken to ensure the long-term viability of the Jervis Bay Leek Orchid in nature and the parties who are likely to carry these out.
