The San Diego Zoo’s Native Seed Bank
Saving Flora, One Seed at a Time
Since 2004 the Institute has been working jointly with state and local government agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management and SANDAG, the San Diego Association of Governments, as well as Kew Gardens and local plant rescue groups to preserve our local native flora. While many of us are familiar with the San Diego Zoo’s efforts to breed and conserve endangered animal species, our April 9th meeting will showcase a mission of the zoo that is seldom seen. This mission is particularly important to SDHS, as it conserves plants from our own backyard that are threatened by urban development and a changing climate. Come listen to what is sure to be an inspiring and encouraging presentation.
