The Royal Botanic Garden of Jordan

The Royal Botanic Garden of JordanOur friends of the The Royal Botanic Garden of Jordan have just sent us an interesting article about this beautiful biodiversity oasis, where we will discover the wide variety of species living there as well as to understand why is this place an example of sustainability, showing a remarkable social role.

Did you know Jordan has 13 different habitats, over 2,550 vascular plant species, and at least 137 kinds of mushrooms? The Royal Botanic Garden (RBG) is conserving this vast range of native biodiversity in Jordan while establishing a centre for research, education and ecotourism. And not only that. The RBG also serves as a demonstration site for sustainable development and works closely with the local community to improve lives.
