Tsukuba Botanical Garden has contributed to the National Network of Botanical Gardens for the Conservation of Plant Diversity organized by the Japan Association of Botanical Gardens. Under this framework, botanical gardens throughout the country and external partners cooperate to promote conservation programs while utilizing each garden's features of climates, regions, and specialties.
The Japan Aquatic Plants Conservation Network was founded in 2007. Its mission is to promote the efficient and effective preservation of threatened Japanese aquatic plants ex situ, and to put these vital resources to effective use in research, education and the restoration of the natural environment. From this Network's inception, the Tsukuba Botanical Garden has played a mainstay role in its operations, aiming to serve as a central facility in the preservation of Japanese aquatic plants.
