marsh award 2140Dr Jože Bavcon is Director of the Ljubljana botanic garden and works tirelessly for the conservation of Slovenia’s native plants. With minimum staff and a small budget he has made great progress in raising awareness amongst University staff, politicians and the general public of the importance of conserving plant diversity and developing botanic gardens. Dr Bavcon focuses on the conservation of endangered plants and a number of species cultivated at the botanic garden are now ready to be reintroduced into their endangered natural habitat. Dr Bavcon has also taken the lead in establishing a national botanic garden network in Slovenia, now including 9 gardens. Each takes responsibility for their own collections, with close attention being paid to rare Slovenian endemic plants and species on the Red Data List.

Through his work with the city authorities, 67 native ash trees have been planted in the city centre as a means to promote native diversity in the urban area. Native bulbs have also been planted along the banks of the Ljubljanica river in the city. These were grown from native genetic material from the garden and include Galanthus nivalis, Leucojum vernum and Cyclamen purpurascens. These now flower in the city just as in the wild.
