About Botanic Gardens Conservation International

There are an estimated 2500 botanic gardens and arboreta in the world attracting 500 million visitors each year. Collectively, it is estimated that botanic gardens conserve at least one third of the world’s plant species in their living collections.

Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) is the pivotal centre of this network. Our members include the largest, most renowned gardens on the planet – Kew, New York, Missouri, Singapore, Sydney and Shanghai – but they also include many smaller gardens situated in the world’s plant diversity hotspots. All of these member gardens share a commitment to making sure that no plant species becomes extinct and a combined workforce of many thousands of horticulturalists and scientists working towards that end.

BGCI provides support to its members in many different ways: we are an advocate for the botanic garden community, promoting the role of botanic gardens in plant conservation policy, practice and education; we connect people, co-ordinating efforts and bringing people together to exchange ideas; we are a knowledge hub, providing training, learning resources and professional support; and we provide funding and technical support to efforts aimed at saving plants.
