Where We Work

BGCI works with national and regional botanic garden networks around the world, supporting training, capacity building and plant conservation projects.

Where we Work


BGCI supports the conservation of endangered plant species around the world. We partner with botanic gardens and other conservation partners to secure plant diversity through research and practical action. We work to ensure that threatened plant species are secure in botanic garden collections as an insurance policy against loss in the wild.

Africa contains around a quarter of global biodiversity. It contains a huge diversity of different biomes from mangroves to deserts, from Mediterranean to tropical forests, from temperate to sub-tropical and montane grasslands and savannahs.


Asia hosts many botanic gardens as the largest and most populous continent on earth.

Caucasus, North and Central Asia

Spanning from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan in the west, the Russian Federation in the north, and Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in the east, this vast region is home to an astounding plant diversity.


The European flora is of global significance but many species are facing an ever increasing range of threats, including the growing challenge of climate change.

Latin America and the Caribbean

The Latin America and Caribbean region supports rich biological diversity, with around sixty per cent of global terrestrial life found within it, alongside diverse freshwater and marine flora and fauna.

North America

North America is one of the top mega-diverse regions of the world that sustains more than two-thirds of Earth’s biodiversity.
