Prevent extinction of Critically Endangered plant species in Mauritius and Rodrigues by inventoring and translocating them to nurseries and/or seed banks, where they will be propagated until they can be released into their native environment. Train local partners and regional stakeholders on in situ and ex situ plant conservation techniques.

Strategic Direction: 2 Enable civil society to mainstream biodiversity and conservation into political and economic decision-making.
