Quotes

"we want to bring back not just the orchids, but the insects that pollinate them" said Carl Lewis , who leads the Million Orchid Project as director of the botanic garden
"We don't know how the orchids are going to respond to urban microclimates," Lewis said. "what we need to do is get these orchids into as many different situations as possible."
"what caught my attention is that they were not just planting those orchids in forest environments, but putting them in the middle of the city among the skyscrapers and some of the busiest streets of singapore. they're all orchids that grow on trees, so they actually coexist very well in an urban environment as long as there are street trees" Lewis says
HSE inspector Steve Lewis said: "mr lewis and mr gilbody could have suffered far worse injuries or even death in this incident, which could have been prevented."
