Welcome to the Guam Plant Extinction Prevention Program

The Guam Plant Extinction Prevention (GPEP) Program is an island-wide program dedicated to preventing the extinction of Guam’s rarest plant species that have fewer than 50 individuals remaining in the wild by working with conservation partners to protect wild populations, preserve their genes off-site, and reintroduce plants to their natural habitats.
