The conservation of Tasmanian rare and threatened species at the RTBG is largely practiced through seedbanking, propagation (including propagation research), dissemination of specimens for environmental rehabilitation projects, and the housing of ex-situ threatened species collections. Plants housed in our collections are regularly used in the Gardens education programs. RTBG staff are also involved in monitoring and habitat restoration work.
