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. 

为了支持植物保护者恢复濒危物种所需的技术与技能, 2018年,BGCI携手国际植物园协会(IABG)共同出版了《物种恢复指南》。该指南包括多个章节以及由植物园生态恢复联盟(ERA)提供的案例研究。
在Rufford基金会的支持下,BGCI根据该指南的章节编制了一系列六个简明的指导概要。具体包括以下主题:

  • 如何开展生态地理调查
  • 如何设计一个物种恢复计划
  • 物种恢复材料如何采集
  • 如何进行种群增强型回归
  • 如何监测物种恢复项目

这些简明的指导概要易于遵循和下载,以方便保护者带到野外。以下是免费提供的中英文版,如有需要,请下载。
