Protecting endangered species:

The Gardens' Head Scientist co-writes the Israeli Red Bookon endangered plant species in Israel.  His team is expanding a long-running JBG project to identify, collect and cultivate threatened species from Israel and beyond. Some of these species are returned to the wild to strengthen dwindling populations. Those with ornamental value are often promoted to growers and public institutions such as city parks departments. 

Protecting endangered species:

Cost of collecting and cultivating each species for five years                            NIS 10,000.

Cost of collecting and cultivating all endangered species in Israel                 NIS 2,840,000
