Plants are essential to everyone's lives. Welcome to Plantlife.
About Plantlife International
Since its founding in 1989, Plantlife has been speaking up for wild plants and fungi not just in the UK but also around the globe.
Plantlife International has been a major contributor to the CBD Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) and together with the Planta Europa Network and the Council of Europe developed a regional European Strategy for Plant Conservation.
Plantlife International works with partner organisations in many countries around the world who are identifying or conserving their Important Plant Areas (IPAs). Plantlife International coordinated efforts to publish European and Global identification criteria for IPAs, and works to promote the work of IPA projects in over 66 countries around the world.
We also recognise that plant conservation begins with people and we work with partners to conserve plants on the ground in community based projects and to raise awareness of civil society rights. We have developed medicinal plant conservation projects with partners and local communities in Africa and the Himalaya. We work to ensure that rural development plans include plant conservation projects, for the benefit of plants and people.
