Our mission is to understand and protect plants and fungi, for the wellbeing of people and the future of all life on Earth.
Earth is the only planet in the universe that we know for certain supports life.
Yet that life is in crisis.
The unprecedented rate of degradation means we are living through an age of extinction. We know the next decade is critical to reverse this trend.
Our aspiration is to end the extinction crisis and help create a world where nature is protected, valued and managed sustainably.
