Reverse the Loss of Key Plant Species
BGCI are working with a range of partners to ensure the conservation of threatened plants within their native habitats (in situ conservation).
- Together with IUCN (the World Conservation Union), we are identifying important areas for plant diversity, and thus conservation action, in six countries thorough the Plants for Prosperity project.
- We have supported botanic gardens in Mexico to conserve threatened cacti and are developing a new approach to bamboo conservation in Cambodia.
- We are working with partners in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam to identify ways to ensure the conservation of threatened medicinal, aromatic and nutritional plants.
- We are looking at ecosystem conservation projects with partners in Madagascar and Namibia.
