As a volunteer with the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG), you can help intercept this unfortunate statistic. Four NTBG gardens are in Hawaiʻi—three on Kauaʻi and one in Hana, Maui. A fifth garden is in Florida. These locales are ideal homes away from home for wild-collected tropical species, as well as native Hawaiian plant conservation, habitat restoration, and the perpetuation of traditional local knowledge.
