Botanic Gardens Conservation International

September 20, 2012

Dokmai Garden was recently invited by Abby Hird to join BGCI which mission statement is:

“To mobilise botanic gardens and engage partners in securing plant diversity for the well-being of people and the planet”

We have added a link to BGCI on our blog (see the list of tropical botanic gardens to your right). The Dokmai Garden plant collection (over 1000 living plant species) has thus been incorporated into the BGCI worldwide database.

We are looking forward to meeting Abby Hird and Evan Meyer when they visit Chiang Mai in January.
