Threatened and rare plants exhibited at the Joseph Reynold O'Neal Botanic Gardens

The National Parks Trust and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew have partnered in the establishment of a permanent collection of threatened and endangered species of plants of the Virgin Islands at the J.R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens.  The newly established collection is the result of years of research, collection throughout the Virgin Islands and propagation of native plants at the Garden's nursery and represents a significant milestone in the conservation of biological diversity.  The collection will serve as a focal point for building awareness of the rare plants of the Virgin Islands.

The establishment of the conservation garden is supported by the United Kingdom Darwin Initiative Fund's project entitled: Conserving plant diversity and establishing ecosystem based approaches to the management of forest ecosystems in the British Virgin Islands.
