There are many plants which are on the brink of extinction, but plants don’t look as cuddly as pandas so the public don’t really know about them or know how to protect them!
A rare plant recently made the news! Nymphaea thermarum – the worlds smallest water lily is extinct in the wild. (It used to live near hot springs in Rwanda). But it was stolen by greedy people from the botanic gardens in London.
This is a terrible shame, because this may mean that other rare and beautiful species might not be on display for everyone to enjoy 🙁
