Collecting plant samples in the Madagascan forest

Kew’s UK Overseas Territories (UKOTs) team helps to conserve the unique biodiversity of the 16 far-flung island groups and peninsulas which make up the UKOTs.

We work with partners in-Territory and from other UK biodiversity organisations to develop and implement practical conservation projects that support the UKOTs in implementing the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.

This blog follows the conservation activities of the UKOTs team at Kew and overseas. For an overview of the UKOTs Programme please read our welcome blog post.
