Kew Garden Director's Note: Despite all the doom and gloom that usually surrounds this topic, I am really pleased to say that weve got lots of positive news to share with everyone about the exciting work Kews scientists and horticulturists have been doing to save rare plants from the brink of extinction plus opportunities for you to play a role in saving our planet. Make sure you read our story about Kews top propagation code-breaker, horticulturist Carlos Magdalena, who cracked the enigma of growing a rare species of African waterlily and brought it back from the brink of extinction.
