A new project at the University of Leicester hopes to save rare and threatened local wildflowers from across Leicestershire and Rutland from extinction. The university has built a deep freeze container, named 'Genebank55,' to store and protect rare wildflower seeds in case of a requirement for repopulation.
Changes in agricultural methods and how the land has been used have endangered some species of wildflower. Some of the species have a scant few individual populations remaining. The University are hoping that Genebank55 will be up and running by 2017.
