Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI)

BGCI is an international organisation that exists to ensure the world-wide conservation of threatened plants, the continued existence of which are intrinsically linked to global issues including poverty, human well-being and climate change.

To do this we support the development and implementation of global policy – specifically the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) – at a global, regional, national, and local level. We work in a catalytic way, through our secretariat in London and regional offices in Kenya, the USA, Singapore and China to deliver the objectives of the GSPC. In support of this objective we produce a range resources and publications, organise a number of regular international gatherings and develop a number of direct conservation programmes.
