We’ve been hard at work articulating and illustrating what we are up to at Beyond Myrtle Rust. Here is our story. This provides an overview of myrtle rust, how it arrived in New Zealand, the impact it stands to have, and the work our researchers are doing to understand and combat myrtle rust.

Many thanks to our resident myrtle rust writer, Jenny Leonard, editor and project management and communication coordinator Renee Johansen, and designer, story map builder and beautification expert, Karen Scott. As well as to all who generously allowed us to use their quotes, knowledge, and images.

Without further ado, here’s our story map. It’s best viewed on a big screen.
