Thank you, Ensermu and Mesfin, for this alert. I have just signed the
petition and added this comment:

" Every time I come to the UK, I make a point of visiting RBG Kew and
bringing relatives and friends with me. For me, it  is a great haven in the
London metropolis and one of the Wonders of the world.  Let me give you a
small example of Kew's value as a global scientific and natural resource.
Here in New Jersey, I am actively using Kew's ditigised herbarium
collections as I mentor a inner-city high school student from Liberia on
her science project about medicinal plants in Africa and North America.
 Please restore RBG Kew's funding!"
