save plants

There are around 400,000 plants species recorded in the world and many more waiting to be discovered and named.  Yet although the threat to the existence of many wild animals is now widely recognized, not many people are aware that plants are also in danger. In February 2015, the Center for Biological Diversity stated “Of the more than 300,000 known species of plants, the IUCN has evaluated only 12,914 species, finding that about 68% of evaluated plant species are threatened with extinction.”
