The National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) is a not-for-profit institution dedicated to enrich life by perpetuating tropical plants, ecosystems, and cultural heritage. Our network of five botanical gardens, preserves and research facilities encompasses nearly 2,000 acres with locations in Hawaii and Florida. Our collections include the largest assemblages of native Hawaiian plant species and breadfruit cultivars in existence, as well as a herbarium (PTBG) and a conservation seed bank. Many of the species in our collections are threatened and endangered or have disappeared from their native habitats. Our strongest asset is our staff. In our preserves and beyond our gardens, we build biocultural conservation programs that are founded in science, best practices, cultural values, and aligned with community priorities. We strive for horticultural excellence and best practice collections stewardship and offer education programs and public engagement opportunities that help deepen people's relationship with plants.
