National Botanic Garden of Wales

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is a charity dedicated to the research and conservation of biodiversity, to sustainability, lifelong learning and the enjoyment of the visitor.

“The impact of industrial development and the consequent climate change has become increasingly evident in recent years, resulting in a global decline in bio-diversity. In 2019 the Welsh Government declared a climate emergency, and as the National Botanic Garden of Wales begins its third decade as part of a worldwide network of botanic gardens working to conserve the eco-systems that we all depend upon, the conservation, research and education programmes of this Botanic Garden become ever more important for the health and well-being of people and the planet.”

“Whilst working with international partners on projects including rainforest restoration in Borneo and conserving rare magnolias in Vietnam, the Botanic Garden is also actively working on conserving threatened and endangered plants that only grow in isolated parts of Wales, or in some cases are even extinct in the wild.”

“Having been created as recently as 2000, the principles of bio-diversity conservation and sustainability as included in the Nagoya Protocol, Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC), the Millennium Development Goals and enshrined in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), were key founding principles for the organisation. Our international plant collections have been built in partnership with the source country, to ensure a fair and equitable sharing of any benefits arising from them.”

“In its short history the Botanic Garden has become internationally renowned for its research activities, has created one of the finest ex-situ collections of Mediterranean climate plants in the world, conserved and protected some of the rarest and most threatened endemic Welsh plants, and is an Ambassador for Wales around the globe.”
