Bushfire Recovery Auction

The Biodiversity Recovery Project was established by John Wardle Architects in February this year. Its mission is to raise funds for the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria to undertake emergency seed collecting and plant rescue trips of critically endangered species in areas impacted by the 2019/2020 bushfires.

All funds raised by the auction will go directly to RBGV. 

“By supporting the Biodiversity Recovery Project, you’ll help RBGV ramp up its Plant Insurance Policy for Victoria by increasing the capacity of its labs and nurseries - the plant hospital if you will – to restore devastated species.  It will enable RBGV to equip its mobile plant rescue vehicles with the best equipment for collecting seeds and build special bushfire recovery areas of its nurseries to propagate plants as quickly as possible for restoration of impacted areas when they are ready.” - Professor Tim Entwisle, Director and Chief Executive at Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
