Conserving Hawaii's Vanishing Flora (205-101)

Monday, June 26, 2006 7:00 - 9:00 pm

Scientists have documented that 80-90 percent of all biodiversity on our planet exists in the tropics - that warm moist belt that circles the earth. Today over one third of all tropical plant species are threatened with extinction and organizations must work together to address this extinction crisis. The National Tropical Botanical Garden, headquartered on the island of Kaua`i in Hawaii, is working to stem the tide of extinction in Hawaii which is known internationally as "the extinction capital of the United States".

Join NTBG's Chipper Wichman to how this important organization was "dreamed into existence" and how their conservation, research and education programs are making a difference.
