Congratulations to Pascal Sibomana and Sandrine Uwase who are the first students to officially receive the Plant Collecting and Herbarium Techniques certificate.

They receive a USD$250 scholarship award from Biocultural Diversity International in honor of their achievement.

This course certification formally recognizes them as Rwanda's leading certified plant collectors, a vital human resource needed for future plant diversity inventory projects based on specimen collection activities. Happy Plant Hunting in the future.!

International Team of Botanists Rediscover Extinct Water Lily in Rwanda.... PRESS RELEASE - http://www.rwandaherbarium.net/press-release/

It was quite a surprise!!! Nymphaea thermarum, also known as the miniature Rwandan water lily, had been Extinct in the Wild (IUCN Red list) in Rwanda since not long after it was first collected in 1987.
Rediscoveries like this don’t happen often! Congrats to the team from National Herbarium of Rwanda!

You can Help Save this Species from extinction too!
