National Tropical Botanical Garden

Publisher Description

National Tropical Botanical Garden is a not-for-profit, non-governmental institution with nearly 2,000 acres of gardens and preserves in Hawai'i and Florida. NTBG is dedicated to preserving tropical plant diversity and preventing extinction - through plant exploration, propagation, habitat restoration, scientific research, and education. NTBG's gardens and preserves are safe havens for at-risk species that otherwise might disappear forever.

NTBG is the only botanical garden with a charter from the United States Congress. Federal charters for private nonprofit entities, such as the NTBG charter, have been granted by Congress only rarely and then only in the circumstance that a compelling case has been made to the Congress that the proposed organization will serve an important national and public need.
