Conservation of Rare Flora

Conservation of Rare Flora


Human inability to see or notice plants in one’s everyday life is a phenomenon known as “plant blindness”. This sidelining of plants is pervasive in communities around the globe. The increasing human centric development has therefore resulted in severe damage to the numerous plant species and their habitats in general. To tackle this challenge “Conservation action and Education” must go hand in hand. “Conservation of Rare Flora” aims to conserve plants with a dwindling population and becoming rarer by each passing day by establishing Cultivation reserves for them - such as Rare and Threatened Plant Parks.


  • Taking conservation action by Cultivation of rare and threatened plants ex situ (i.e. outside their native habitats) by establishing plant conservation parks.

  • Protecting rare and threatened plants away from its native range where threats responsible for their dwindling populations are eliminated and plants get care in a secure environment.

  • Biodiversity conservation at species specific level.

  • Display of rare and threatened plants in public spaces with detailed informative signages so as to create awareness and education amongst the public to tackle plant blindness.


The project will benefit various stakeholders, including:

  • National and Regional Scale: The project will assist Nation, States, Districts and even municipalities to attain United Nations SDG 15 (Sustainable Development Goal 15: Life on land) which aims to conserve plant and animal species from extinction.

  • Residents and Tourists: To educate and aware the regional public and travellers to a city w.r.t. to plant conservation.

  • Next Generation: To educate Children with the importance of plants and create an aware generation which in itself is a long term strategy to improve human plant relations and address plant extinction.


  • Creation of a permanent reserve of Rare and threatened plants: A permanent place of growth for numerous rare and threatened plant populations.

  • Education and Awareness: A place with high footfall and educational signage to aware and educate the general public.

  • Enhanced community well-being: Improved community and plant interactions to achieve long term conservation

  • Replicability and scalability: The successful establishment of a Conservation reserve of rare and threatened plants will serve as a model for similar initiatives and contribute to a broader movement of plant conservation.


  • Contribution of funder to the needed cause of rare and threatened plant conservation and in alignment with SDG (Sustainable Development Goal 15: Life on land)

  • Building of brand image as action takers with long term vision in plant conservation domain.

  • Employee engagement activities via volunteering.

  • Broadening employee knowledge and sensitizing them towards nature and plants in particular.

  • Meaningful social and environmental impact by improved community and plant relations.

  • Increased publicity and visibility.

  • Employee Engagement via volunteering activity.

  • Alignment with corporate social responsibility (CSR) objectives.
