Bergeline and Konrad were supporting Acción salva una especie this month. The above picture shows them while counting and labeling the rare Sosúa sage, proudly presenting plant number 51.
Sosúa sage is known from a single coastal cliff in the Dominican Republic only. Prior to this action, nobody knew exactly, how many individuals of this rare sage were left in the wild. We hoped to find 50 individuals. With support of Bergeline and Konrad we found plant number 51 – and the counting goes on!
Special thanks to Konrad, who flew in from Germany, and to Bergeline, who crossed the island in a chilly bus, in order to join Acción salva una especie and support the field work! You feel inspired by Konrad and Bergeline? You wish to volunteer with us too? Drop us a line!
