Did you know there are only 2,000 documented individuals of the star cactus, Astrophytum asterias, known to exist in the wild in the United States? The numbers aren’t much better for peyote, Lophophora williamsii, or black lace cactus, E. reichenbachii var. albertii.
Dr. Martin Terry, a founder of the Cactus Conservation Institute, based in Alpine, TX, and a world-renowned cactus conservation expert, will present the latest observations on the accelerating destruction of the cactus habitat known as the Tamaulipecan thornscrub in South Texas. Join us Tuesday, June 2, on ZOOM!
