It is estimated that worldwide up to 50% of plant species face extinction. Every plant performs vital functions that make life on earth possible. That's a significant threat to our planet.
By collecting, storing and researching native seeds, the NSW Seedbank is helping to protect our natural diversity. The Seedbank is targeting plants most at risk from climate change and human activities to ensure the powerful knowledge and functions contained in plant DNA aren't lost forever.
The NSW Seedbank is part of the Millennium Seed Bank project described by Sir David Attenborough as 'perhaps the most important conservation initiative ever.'
You can support this conservation work through the Save a Species campaign.
