Mission Statement

To mobilize botanic gardens and engage partners in securing plant diversity for the well-being of people and the planet.

Description

Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) is a global organization that links over 700 botanic garden members in 118 countries into a global network for plant conservation. Through this network BGCI strives to be a voice for plants, to implement and monitor progress toward the UN’s Global Strategy for Plant Conservation, and to ensure that no plant conservation, restoration or education work at botanic gardens is limited by lack of access to information or expertise.

BGCI’s main office is in London with satellite programs in several other countries. In the United States, more than 80 institutions are BGCI members, and have an informal affiliation with Botanic Gardens Conservation International (U.S.), Inc. (BGCI US). BGCI US is a 501(c)3 organization that shares BGCI’s mission and vision, but maintains an independent budget and Board of Directors.

BGCI US acts as a central "hub" that connects interests, best practices and information across BGCI’s member gardens and with conservation partners in the U.S. Working with BGCI, it facilitates engagement and collaboration on mutual interests within the United States and globally.
