    Biodiversity and Kew

    From fungi to forests and bacteria to bountiful deserts, biodiversity is one of our greatest assets to be protected.

    In an age of extinction, we’re finding long-term ways to protect and restore natural habitats so all life on Earth can thrive.

    The gardens

    Kew Gardens and Wakehurst, two of the planet’s most beloved outdoor spaces, are home to the most diverse collection of plants in the world.

    That beauty and variety helps us all live a little better, physically and mentally, but it’s also critical in the global fight against the effects of climate change.

    Our plants are an extraordinary source of knowledge and a key tool for researchers worldwide, helping us understand what species need and how we can ensure their future.
