The first ark is the Rare Nepenthes Collection, which was inaugurated on 7th August, 2010 at the Leiden Botanic garden in partnership with the Hortus botanicus Leiden (represented by Paul Kessler) and the International Carnivorous Plant Society (represented by Marcel van den Broek).

Rare Nepenthes plants were generously donated by The Nepenthes Nursery (Andreas Wistuba) and Borneo Exotics (Robert Cantley), as well as private individuals interested in the conservation of carnivorous plants.
The CPS is delighted to support Ark of Life and to help to expand the initiative to save other carnivorous plant groups, and further plant and animal species!
