Imagine a world without plants

That’s what Botanical Garden Conservation International asks you to do as part of their new Plants for the Planet campaign. Our friend at BGCI tells us that the aim of the campaign “is to gather signatures from people around the world in order to ensure that governments adopt the updated Global Strategy for Plant Conservation at the next Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Support for the campaign will help us to send a strong message to the Conference that countries must act now to halt plant extinction.” Well worth spending a couple of minutes signing up. The Global Strategy for Plant Conservation was highlighted recently as one of the most significant achievements of the CBD.
