We all rely on plants – we couldn’t exist without them. Plants give us food, medicines, clothes, products and even the clean air that we breathe! However, our plants are in danger. As the planet is being harmed, plants are dying and some species will be lost forever. When we talk about saving wildlife, most people think of animals like giant pandas or tigers, not plants. How can we make sure that everyone knows about how special plants are so they can help to save them?
