Scientists Work With Cuba To Bring Lost Orchids Back To Florida State Park
Florida’s Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park is home to more than 40 native species of orchids, but there used to be many more. Over the years, many orchid species were lost through poaching and habitat destruction. Scientists there have recently found and restored some lost orchids. They’re now working with scientists in Cuba, where some orchids now extinct in Florida can still be found.
