Australian Network For Plant Conservation (Anpc) Inc.

Logo for Australian Network For Plant Conservation (Anpc) Inc.

The ANPC is a network of people and organisations dedicated to the conservation of Australia’s native plant species and vegetation communities. Our mission is to “Promote and develop plant conservation in Australia”. We provide for the exchange of information and ideas, especially between researchers and on-ground practitioners. This is achieved through publishing our quarterly journal Australasian Plant Conservation and guidelines on plant conservation techniques, as well as holding workshops and a biennial national conference. We also promote plant conservation through our website, social media channels and our monthly newsletter ANPC News. The ANPC head office is in the Crosbie Morrison Building at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra. We are a small not-for-profit organisation hosted by the Gardens. We have two part-time office staff and currently two volunteers working in the office approximately 3-4 hrs per week. We also employ two Project Managers who work remotely. The ANPC’s activities are overseen by a Management Committee which represents a range of stakeholders in plant conservation from around Australia. Many committee members actively contribute to projects. The committee meets once every 2 months, mostly via teleconference. The ANPC is a member organisation with approximately 350 members. Out income is mostly generated by membership fees, grants, sponsorship, donations and surpluses from workshops and conferences.
