Peru is considered one of the 17 most diverse countries in the world. Scientists estimate that it has around 25,000 species of flora (10% of the world), 5,528 endemic plants, 1,846 species of birds (third highest in the world), 624 amphibians (fourth highest in the world), 4,000 species of butterflies (most in the world), 4,000 species of orchids, and 3,800 varieties of potatoes.
Despite the wide and recognized biological diversity of Peru, there is currently no national botanical garden. For this reason, we join Concytec, the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Culture, the British Embassy, and the Asociación Pro Jardín Botánico Nacional de Lima to promote in the public agenda the creation of a national botanical garden for the conservation of biodiversity.
