Our native orchids need you!

Singapore was once home to 229 species of native wild orchids. More than two thirds of them - 170 of them – to be precise are now extinct, and have disappeared forever.

You may not realise that out of the remaining 59 native orchids, 54 are either critically endangered or rare and only 5 are common.

Ensuring the survival of our native orchids

With the help of local orchid experts at the National Parks Board, Garden City Fund started an Orchid Conservation Fund to raise some $250,000 to save our native orchids.
