Future plans to become a Centre of Excellence

The Mossman Botanic Garden has established partnerships with the Australian Tropical Herbarium/James Cook University and other educational institutions to manage, understand and protect the garden collections. The bio-security station and strategy aim to set and meet the highest standards of bio-security for any public garden and raise awareness and confidence amongst the community amongst the importance of a good strategy. It will be instrumental in providing prevention, protection and research opportunities. The garden will attract researchers and students from across the globe.
