Save the Rwandan Water Lily from Extinction

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm Dr. Michael Thomas, a plant conservationist and I'm raising money to Save the Rwandan Water Lily from Extinction, - any donation will help make an impact. I was part of a team of 3 botanists who rediscovered an extinct species on an expedition in August 2023 in a remote wetland in Rwanda. First collected in 1987, it has been thought for decades to be extinct in the wild. Along with the help of local villagers, we have rediscovered a single population. Now we need your help!

Donations will be used in Rwanda to support monitoring and development of a species recovery plan by a Rwandan graduate student to ensure its survival.

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause.. For more information about our effort to save the world's smallest Water Lily Flower from extinction - visit Save the Rwandan Water Lily Campaign.
