exhibition view at the Botanical Museum in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 2019.

Saussurea Porcii, an endemic flower from the Rodnei Mountains went extinct about 100 years ago due to excesive grazing in the area. It was suprisingly found in the past few years but only in small bunches and it's still in great danger of extinction for the same reason as before.
