Safeguarding Australia's Flora
The Australian Seed Bank Partnership is an alliance of 12 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.
How we protect the future of Australian flora
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 generous donors and supporters to continue our important work and achieve our vision for a future where Australia’s native plant diversity is valued, understood and conserved for the benefit of all.
