Safeguarding Australia's Flora

The Australian Seed Bank Partnership is an alliance of 14 organisations, bringing together expertise from Australia’s leading botanic gardens, state environment agencies and NGOs. Governed by The Council of Heads of Australian Botanic Gardens Inc., we are working on strategic solutions to deal with the multitude of threats facing our biodiversity.

Seeds of Hope Appeal

This summer, help us to collect, study and safely store native seeds for conservation

How we protect the future of Australian flora

Seed Banking

Collecting and storing seed in seed banks is one of the most powerful ways to combat the global decline of plant diversity.

Research to safeguard from loss

Knowledge to propagate native plants from seeds mean our banked collections can be used in the future to help halt declines in the wild

United Expertise

The Partnership unites the expertise of environmental institutions, including botanic gardens, herbaria, state agencies and non-government organisations.

What We Do

Across Australia, governments, non-government organisations and community groups are collecting and conserving native seeds in secure vaults. Conservation seed banks provide a future-proof insurance policy for Australia’s unique flora, which is especially important in times of environmental stress.

Our Partners and Associates

The Australian Seed Bank Partnership relies on a strong collaboration with our partners and associates
to achieve our vision for a future where Australia’s native plant diversity is valued, understood and conserved for the benefit of all.
