Discover Wild Plants
'Plants capture energy from the sun and all life
on land, directly or indirectly, depends on them. So, ultimately, plants
fuel the diversity of life on earth'
Sir David Attenborough
seeks to conserve wild plants and fungi using a range of approaches. We
work to conserve key habitats and we have designated Important Plant
Areas to draw attention to those parts of the country that sustain
important collections of plants. We also devise and carry out projects
aimed at recovering declining populations of key species and
demonstrating how they can be effectively conserved in the future.
