Why?

The IUCN have been assessing the conservation status of wild species for more than four decades to pinpoint those that are threatened with extinction.

The TPP fulfils a smilar role for cultivars in the UK, but goes a few steps further by assessing them for value and sourcing conservation plans. Identifying threatened plants enables Plant Heritage to use its resources where they are most needed.
