The Ark of life website can now be visited.
For those who missed this: Stewart McPherson set up a conservation foundation that aims to preserve endangered species in cultivation. This foundation is called Ark of Life. The first ark is the Rare Nepenthes Collection. In cooperation with the Hortus botanicus Leiden and the ICPS this ark has moored in Leiden, The Netherlands. The first residents have already arrived and are growing happily in the greenhouses thanks to the generous donors.

I know, it took some time and not everything is working perfectly yet but it is really worth visiting:

There is also a Facebook page:

Let us know if you like it :wink:
