Few people are aware of the endangered status of many plant species. The term ‘endangered species’ usually makes people think about panda’s, tigers and rhino’s, but there are many endangered plant species too. The Hortus botanicus Leiden actively cultivates many of these plants and shows them to the public. Contrary to a zoo, people can see these endangered species up close and even interact with them, making it a special experience for many people.
