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

Expertise & knowledge sharing

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.

Who we are

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.
