Description

The Dr. Cecilia Koo Botanic Conservation Center (KBCC) is a non-governmental organization for tropical plant conservation in Taiwan. Its mission is to conserve tropical and sub-tropical plants and maintain rich biodiversity on earth. In order to fulfill this mission, our present goal is to collect 40,000 different taxa and become the largest shelter of tropical plants on earth by 2027. And the ultimate aim is to reintroduce plants back to the wild environment. While KBCC’s strategy focuses on ex situ conservation through an emphasis on living collections of plant species, the center also has facilities for both tissue culture and cryo-preservation and currently runs a 'Deep Freeze' cryopreservation project with a target of 240,000 specimens from the living collections at KBCC.
