Jardi Botanic – updated 18 October 2022
Jardi Botanic (Jardí Botànic) (Botanic Garden) was opened to the public in 1992 having been founded 7 years previously.
It is a centre for the conservation, study and understanding of Mediterranean flora, specifically the flora of the Balearic Islands.
In addition to conserving the rare and endangered plant species of the Balearic and other Mediterranean islands, the foundation also educates adults and school children about the flora and also has a conservation biology research function.
Jardi Botanic specialises in the management of plant species that are in danger of extinction with the objective of helping these species survive within their own natural habitats.
Sóller Botanic Garden has four collections on show, the seed bank, Herbarium, living plant collection and endangered flora.
