Are we making progress on plant conservation in the United States?
BGCI US and the Plant Conservation Alliance are working to answer this
question, and we.ve developed a survey that lets everyone involved in
plant conservation* in the U.S. easily report their efforts and help guide
future plant conservation activities. Whether you work at a government
agency, academic institution, or the private sector, or if you work or
volunteer at a conservation organization, we want to make sure your
contributions to conserving America's native plants are counted.
We need your help to make this project a success. Please visit
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NationalFramework to take the survey now.
The survey contains 20 questions, will take 10-15 minutes to complete, and
will be open until April 30, 2011. Results will be published in a
freely-available report , and used to measure progress toward the PCA's
National Framework for Progress in Plant Conservation while helping to
guide its evolution. Please see www.bgci.org/usa/PCAProgress for more
information about this project.
Thank you for your participation!
*For the purposes of this project, plant conservation is broadly defined
as any activity that helps protect native plants by ensuring that native
plant populations and their communities are maintained, enhanced, and
restored. This includes research, monitoring, restoration, management, as
well as education and outreach.
