Botanic Gardens Conservation International

Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) is the world’s largest plant conservation network, and it’s trying to save the planet’s plants. Based at Kew in London, the group’s membership includes over 800 botanic gardens from 118 countries. These gardens work together to share info, battle climate change, educate the public about the environment, and coordinate protection efforts. BGCI currently runs large conservation projects in China, North America, Russia, and the Mid East. Check out the Eastern Prairie White Fringed Orchid, one of the species they’re working to save in Illinois.  You can help by donating, becoming an individual member, and supporting your own local botanical garden.
