How you can help Kew's global conservation work

Seed collecting in Botswana

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Botswana

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership is working in Botswana to help safeguard wild plant species. Climate change and human activities are contributing factors that are threatening plant life. By sharing knowledge, developing local facilities and increasing conservation skills we can help reach our goal of saving Botswana’s wild plants.


Checking seeds in Burkina Faso

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership - Burkina Faso

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership is working in Burkina Faso to help safeguard wild plant species. Combined efforts will make direct contributions to national and global conservation programmes, the results of which include helping to maintain the wellbeing of local populations.


Seed collecting in Chile

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Chile

Seed banks provide an insurance policy against the loss of plants in the wild and provide options for their future use. Seed banking is vital as part of our conservation efforts in Chile where several plant species found nowhere else are on the brink of extinction.


MSB training course in China

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership - China

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank and partners in China are working together to conserve flora in one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. Home to many plants found nowhere else, China’s rapid development is placing some species under threat.


Sempervivum marmoreum in Bulgaria

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Continental Europe

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership seeks to safeguard the world’s wild plant species. To optimise conservation efforts, networks and collaborations have been established and Kew is working hard to maintain conservation efforts closer to home as well as worldwide.


Seed collecting in Jordan

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Jordan

Threats to plant survival in Jordan include drought, agriculture, and the rapid increase of the population. The partnership is working hard to protect the spectacular and wide range of plant species which human populations depend on.


Recording seeds in Lebanon

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Lebanon

Population pressure, urbanisation and the aftermath of the civil war are the main threats to biodiversity in Lebanon. Collecting and storing seeds of plant species that are at risk provides insurance against the loss of these endangered plants in the wild.


MSB training course in Kenya

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Kenya

Many populations, particularly in Africa continue to have a strong dependancy on plants for food, medicine and a host of other uses. Working with farmers groups, community-led nurseries and government agencies, the Millennium Seed Bank has been working in Kenya to collect, conserve and use seed from a wide range of "useful" and threatened species.


MSB team working in the field in Madagascar

Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership – Madagascar

Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island but seems to have a whole continent's worth of plant diversity on it. However, habitat loss and overexploitation are posing serious threats to this unique island. Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership is saving seeds for both future security of the species and also for immediate land rehabilitation.


Expedition in Malawi

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership - Malawi

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank partnership is carrying out conservation work in Malawi to save threatened plant life. Collecting and storing seeds in Malawi will help to prevent plant loss in the wild and secure plant diversity for the future.
