Orchids at the ready: 2023 Scholarship success

During September, many of you received hand-delivered Cymbidium orchids (pictured below) with a request to donate funds to support the creation of two Masters student scholarships who will work with Te Papa’s Dr Carlos Lehnebach on his work to save Aotearoa’s rare and native orchid species. We are pleased to inform you that $30,000 was raised during the campaign to fund the students who will begin their work with Te Papa in March 2023.

If you would like to continue supporting the Foundation through scholarships, please reach out to the Foundation below.
