Plants are the foundation of life on earth, yet 40% of species are estimated to be threatened with extinction. Human and environmental health are intrinsically linked, and increasingly urgent action is needed to protect and restore our natural world in the face of accelerating environmental crisis.
Every donation we receive is crucial in enabling us to enhance our global collaboration on research, conservation and education to increase environmental sustainability and fight back against extinctions and ecological loss.
