Status: Completed
Regions: UKOT
Countries: Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos Islands
Purpose: Native plant species of the Caribbean UK Overseas Territories (UKOTs) effectively conserved ex-situ through seed banking. High quality collections of priority species available as a supply of material for in-situ conservation projects and native plant nurseries in the UKOTs, with duplicates stored at the Millennium Seed Bank for long-term security. Local capacity to undertake plant conservation measures improved. As a result, the future of the UKOTs’ plant diversity (and thus the foundation of the islands’ green economies) will be more secure.
