New Guidance on Threatened Species Recovery Launched
BGCI supports conservation practitioners to develop the skills and techniques required to recover threatened species. In 2018, in collaboration with the International Association of Botanic Gardens (IABG), BGCI published a manual to guide species recovery projects. The manual includes chapters and case studies from members of the Ecological Restoration Alliance of Botanic Gardens.
Building on this resource, and with support from the Rufford Foundation, BGCI has produced a series of six concise guidance briefs based on chapters of the manual. They cover the following topics:
- Carrying out eco-geographical surveys
- Designing a species recovery plan
- Collecting material for species recovery
- Engaging with local communities
- Carrying out population reinforcement
- Monitoring species recovery projects.
The guidance briefs are designed to be easy to follow and downloaded so they can be taken into the field by practitioners. They are freely available to download below in English and Chinese.
