Tropical ecosystems are the most biodiverse on Earth and over two-thirds of all plant species on the planet grow in the tropics. These plants provide oxygen, habitat, and food for all life on our planet. Tropical plants also provide a myriad of medicines and products for people. Yet a quarter of all plant species are in danger of extinction and most of those plants are found in the tropics.
Support is needed more than ever to ensure the survival of endangered and threatened tropical plants in an era of changing climate and a growing human population. Our supporters make it possible for the National Tropical Botanical Garden to address this challenge.
