Who Are BGCI Members?

BGCI is a membership organisation, open to all. You can join us in our global efforts to ensure plants are protected from the many threats facing them today.

BGCI members encompass everything from large botanic gardens of international importance to individuals who are interested in gardens.

Many of our institution members are not strictly botanic gardens but find our resources valuable - for example, zoos, universities and genetic resource holders.

Often, an individual within a member institution may wish to receive their own copies of our journals, or non-professionals who have a passion for plants and conservation may wish to join us too. We welcome your support.


BGCI members receive many benefits. Our regular journals: BGJournal and Roots, are sent to members and we offer discounts on BGCI congresses and expert publications.

But much more important, although less directly tangible, are the benefits of being part of the world's largest plant conservation network. Chance meetings, contacts we offer, encouragement, advice and support - all this adds up to a valuable and unique service for anyone working in the conservation of living plants.
