Over a third of the world's conifers are threatened with extinction in the wild. Conifers are an extremely important group of plants, many species provide human-kind with essential materials including timber and medicines, and vast conifer forests act as huge carbon sinks.
Unless we act now to save them, many species are in very real danger of being lost forever. iCONic needs your help to save these trees and to ensure that future generations will enjoy the benefits of this remarkable part of the world's biodiversity.
iCONic is an ambitious conservation project and one which is unique in its approach - there's no better way to learn about it than from the collective of experts who are involved in the project.
