Australia’s major botanic gardens united to assist ecosystem restoration in response to recent bushfires

The impact of the recent bushfires on our native plants and animals has been severe. Millions of hectares of native habitat have been burnt, putting at risk the survival of plant and animal species.

The Council of Heads of Australian Botanic Gardens has released a statement in recognition of the recent fires, and has affirmed its commitment to support the recovery process by providing access to botanic gardens’ living collections of plants and seeds, as well as to the botanical and research expertise in gardens across the country.
