WWF Finds New Orchids

WWF was founded as the World Wildlife Fund in the 1960s by Brit Sir Peter Scott and several others to help save nature - "We shan't save all we should like to, but we shall save a great deal more than if we had never tried," said Sir Peter.

Now an international organisation with thousands of projects underway, WWF just announced the discovery of 30 new species of orchids in tropical rainforests in Papua New Guinea, according to the TIMES.

I glance at the delicately beautiful yet sturdy orchid blooming in my living room, and imagine unexplored rainforests and orchids glowing among the trees, and yes, lurking in that forest, who else, but Brits. . .
