The Cycad Specialist Group Ex situ Conservation and Recovery Programme was initiated and driven by a number of proposals developed by the IUCN/SSC Cycad Specialist Group (CSG) in their Action Plan of 2003. The goal of the Ex situ Conservation and Recovery Programme is to respond to the many needs for ex situ conservation of cycads to develop and promote a network of botanical institutions that (1) will ensure that all Critically Endangered cycad taxa are represented in gene banks within three years and all Endangered taxa within fi ve years, and (2) can provide the expertise and plant material required to support community nurseries and reintroduction programmes.
