Ensuring the survival of endangered
plants in the Mediterranean

"Ensuring the survival of endangered plants in the Mediterranean" project on IB3 radio

Two partners of the project have participated in a radio talk-show in the radio programme “Balears fa Ciencia” (Balearic Islands do science), the 15th of June 2013 in the Botanic Garden of Sòller (Mallorca).

IB3 station (Balearic island public radio) installed its technique equipment inside the Botanic Garden and the talk-show was recorded around a big stone table under the shadow of a magnificent oak (Quercus macrocarpa) that the main director of the Botanic Garden planted himself several years ago. Visitors to the garden were invited to listen to the programme and later they participated in a game show of the programme.
