Coordination and Support
Botanic Gardens Conservation International collectively coordinates the Global Conservation Consortia through network development and support of consortia leadership, promotion of scientifically-informed best practices, facilitation of communication and data sharing, as well as provision of conservation prioritisation support. BGCI also provides institutional recognition for consortia collaborators, advocates globally for consortia, and mobilizes conservation action through collaborative fundraising and provision of grant opportunities.
Dan Crowley is the Global Conservation Consortia Manager. He also coordinates the Global Conservation Consortium for Acer on behalf of the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden. He is hosted by Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, UK.
