Expert backs call to honour Charlie, a ‘conservation hero’

The idea of putting celebrating Charlie Benjamin as a hero of St Helena conservation has gone down well with plant expert Dr Colin Clubbe.

He used the Twitter messaging website to support the idea of putting Charlie’s name on the map to honour his bravery in retreiving a plant that turned out to be the long-lost St Helena ebony.

Colin, who works with Kew Gardens to conserve the unique flora of UK Overseas Territories, describes his role as “speaking up for plants”.

Here’s his message:
