World wide as many as 50% of plant species face extinction. The Royal Botanic Garden needs to raise a big chunk of cash from donors to close the funding gap for a world-class research center to bank Australia’s precious seeds as a hedge against extinction.
PlantBank at the Australian Botanic Garden will safeguard the future of our precious plant species through ‘seed-banking’, research and information-sharing. This facility will bring together the best science and the best scientists to recover degraded landscapes, generating new knowledge for better conservation planning and responding to climate change.
If you’re searching for the perfect future-proof Christmas idea, make a gift in support of Plant Bank. (The donate button is a bit hard to find. It’s the text bubble, or just click here.)
