Our Mission

Bamboo of the Americas is a non-profit conservation action organization established to ensure the sustained viability of native bamboo species throughout the Americas. Native bamboo plants and habitat are disappearing rapidly. A solution is to cooperate with and assist regional botanic gardens and ecological institutions by establishing living and herbarium collections in partner countries.
