Georgia — Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance

The Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance (GPCA) is a network of more than 40 Georgia universities, botanical gardens, zoos, state and federal agencies, conservation organizations, and private companies that are committed to ecological land management, native plant conservation, and protection of rare and endangered plants. Though headquartered at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, GPCA extends far beyond the Garden with projects statewide.

The Mission of the Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance is to study and conserve Georgia’s flora through multidisciplinary research, education, and advocacy; facilitate the recovery of rare, threatened, and endangered plants of Georgia and the southeast US through collaborative efforts in our state; support the development and implementation of the Georgia State Wildlife Action Plan, as well as other plant, wildlife, and habitat conservation plans by member agencies and organizations; and communicate the importance of preserving biodiversity worldwide.
