CPC Conservation Directory
CPC was founded in 1984 with the guiding principal that the world’s plant conservation experts must come together to make a meaningful difference in preserving plant diversity for future generations. A principal goal is to advance the science of plant conservation and to openly and effectively share best practices with as many conservation practitioners as possible.
CPC is a network of 56 Participating Institutions. These botanical gardens, arboreta, and organizations are working to save plant diversity for future generations. The Conservation Officers within this Network are some of the leading plant conservationists in the world. Individually and collectively, they advance the science of saving some of the rarest plants in the world.
