Become a Plantlife member today and together we will rebuild a world rich in plants and fungi
Plantlife speaks up for wild plants and fungi on the world stage. We campaign for global strategies for nature, people and the climate to include the restoration of native wild plant and fungi species and habitats – for a healthy, diverse, plant rich world.
Our goal is that the United Nations, governments and other international institutions take action for the conservation of wild plants and fungi to tackle the climate, biodiversity and societal challenge we face right across our only planet.
Plantlife is at the heart of a growing global network of scientists, policy makers, conservation organisations, local and indigenous communities, working to bridge the gap from knowledge to conservation action on the ground.
Important Plant Areas (IPAs) are at the heart of our global action for wild plants and fungi. They are the key sites in the world for exceptional botanical richness, rare, threatened and socio-economically valuable plant species and rare and threatened habitats.
Plantlife developed the first IPA criteria in 2001, and these are now being applied in over 50 countries around the world.
At Plantlife, we are focused in gaining recognition for grassland ecosystems around the world as nature-based solutions to the climate crisis.
Storing between 25-35% of the world’s terrestrial carbon, they are an underutilised resource. We work with several international organisations in calling on world governments to recognise their value on a global scale.
Plantlife is working closely with other members of the GPPC to produce a set of complementary actions related to plant conservation, to be adopted at CoP 16 that will sit alongside and support the newly adopted Targets of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.
Plantlife has worked closely with other members of the GPPC to establish a set of complementary actions related to plant conservation for the new Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC).
As COP28 draws to a close, it's not just about fossil fuels. We will keep showing that wild plants and fungi need to be central to the climate solution.
Throughout February, Plantlife is participating in Reverse the Red's Fungi Month – a chance to discover some of our most threatened species.
