A CHALLENGE FOR PLANT CONSERVATION

One of the main constraints limiting conservation of plants is the absence of the appropriate skills of conservationists at local levels. The lack of practical skills hinders conservation actions by reducing their effectiveness and sustainability.

"Ultimately conservation is about people..."

- Nelson Mandela
