The Council of Heads of Australian Botanic Gardens Incorporated (CHABG) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting the protection, conservation and enhancement of Australian plants and their ecosystems.
The Australian Seed Bank Partnership coordinates collaborative plant conservation activities across Australia. These include seed banking, scientific research, knowledge sharing and education to safeguard Australia’s flora and address national conservation priorities.
In December 2018, people from a diversity of cultures, languages, and organisations from around the world responded to the global impacts of climate change to attend the botanical world’s first Climate Change Summit in Australia and form the Climate Change Alliance of Botanic Gardens (Alliance).
The current growing membership comprises over 65 botanical organisations, gardens and arboreta from across the world including peak industry bodies: Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI), International Association of Botanic Garden (IABG), Botanic Gardens Australia and New Zealand (BGANZ) and the American Public Gardens Association (APGA).
By joining the Alliance, Botanic Gardens and similar organisations around the world will have access to a global network of Botanic Gardens and Arboreta, Botanic Gardens Associations, scientists, horticulturists and friends of Alliance who are working together to protect their Gardens and the plants of the world. Through information sharing and increased influence, Alliance will continue to be the change that the world needs to see.
According to Dr Dave Kendal from the University of Tasmania, in the next 50 years, 20-50% of current plant species in botanic gardens and urban landscapes will likely confront temperatures those species have never experienced before.
The time for action is now: please consider joining the Alliance so collectively we can make a real difference with climate change action to safeguard plant collections, landscapes and biodiversity.
