WILDFIRES set by criminal action in Funchal, Madeira in August 2016 destroyed well over 100 properties with all their belongings.

One of these properties was the beautiful strong>ORQUIDARIUM MADEIRA which was completely eaten up by the flames. Please, go to their pages and share their story in order to take action to help the strong>ORQUIDARIUM  re-start their important work in research and nature preservation.

Thank you!

A DONATION of an euro or an orchid plant may help this strong>ORQUIDARIUM rise from the ashes  and became what it was , continuing with it’s legacy / work  in Orchid investigation and preservation. Once again THANK YOU 🙂
