New Zealand Indigenous Flora Seed Bank
The New Zealand Indigenous Flora Seed Bank (NZIFSB) aims to collect the seeds of New Zealand flora, to conserve the biodiversity within New Zealand’s indigenous flora.
New Zealand is recognised as a biodiversity hotspot. We have around 2600 taxa of indigenous plants, with 80 per cent of these classified as endemic and 40% at risk or threatened. Seed banking is a recognised conservation strategy to support in-situ conservation efforts.
