We want to welcome our newest IGA institutional member, the Breeds of Origin Conservancy.
Breeds of Origin Conservancy is a voluntary organization established in 2016 in Malta. They believe that conservation of the endemic flora and fauna, indigenous breeds; native species and subspecies; and cultivated varieties of trees and plants is vital to preserving the Maltese biodiversity for economic, social, educational, and cultural purposes. Today, these indigenous breeds, endemic species and subspecies, and cultivated varieties of trees and plants are increasingly threatened through commercial agriculture and consumption habits. They are convinced that since the protection and conservation of these breeds, species, subspecies, and varieties are of vital importance to Malta and a part of their national heritage, it is their obligation to ensure their survival.
