Save Our Species (SOS)
The Save Our Species program of the
American Begonia Society was created to encourage its members to
adopt one or more species, keep it / them
growing in cultivation, and, by propagation,
share them with others so that we do not
lose species begonias altogether.
So many species including begonia species
are no longer to be found in the wild, and
the loss continues at an alarmingly rapid
rate due to human depredation or natural
catastrophes such as landslides.
To join the SOS program all you need do is
to select a species or several to adopt &
inform Johanna Zinn.
Please contact Johanna for more information.
