Ensuring the survival of endangered
plants in the Mediterranean

Presentation of the project in Chania, Crete

The 16th "Agricultural August" exhibition, held in Chania, Crete, 1-10 August 2014, was an opportunity for the Mediterranean Plant Conservation Unit of MAICh to present the project to the wide public. The exhibition is organised every year by the Municipality of Chania and its thematic topic this year was: “Cretan Flora: Health, Nutrition, Tourism”. Hundreds of visitors, local people and tourists, have been informed about the importance of ensuring the survival of endangered Mediterranean plants and about the progress of the project in Crete. A poster was prepared for this purpose and the project postcards with the endemic plants from the 6 Mediterranean islands were freely available.
