Vision and Mission

Safeguarding Australia's Flora

Our Vision

Our vision is for a future where Australia’s native plant diversity is valued, understood and conserved for the benefit of all.

We have created, for the first time, a formal network of ten conservation seed banks and three other flora-focused organisations bridging the gap between policy makers, researchers, seed collectors and on-ground conservation and restoration activities.

Our Mission

Our mission is a national effort to conserve Australia’s native plant diversity through collaborative and sustainable seed collecting, banking, research and knowledge sharing.

The Partnership:

  • maintains a nationally cooperative seed banking effort
  • collects and stores seed in secure seed banks as long-term insurance against loss of biodiversity
  • researches ways to improve conservation and restoration outcomes from seed banking
  • trains and builds Australian expertise to support conservation and restoration
  • shares knowledge about Australian flora and our work.
