History, Vision and Obligation

Information

In 1992, the Botanical Garden Organization (BGO) was established by the Thai Government with the mission to support the research and development of botany and the ex situ conservation of the valuable natural resources of Thailand. The BGO was a state enterprise under the Prime Minister’s Office, however, in October 2002, as the result of state sectors reform, the BGO was assigned to a newly established Ministry - Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden (QSBG), or formerly known as Mae Sa Botanic Garden, is the first botanical garden in Thailand which complied with the international standards. The main objective of the QSBG is to encourage the botanical research and education. In 1994, the BGO received the honor from HM the Queen granting a royal permission to name the northern botanic garden after Her Majesty‘s name as Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden.

The missions of the BGO are to become the hub for Thai plants with academic excellence on botany and to become the center for the research and study of botany, biodiversity, and conservation. The BGO also aims to present the beauty and value of Thai plants to the world.
