Transcript of Rafflesia Arnoldii
By Andy, Benjamin and Brian
What is its habitat?
Why is it threatened
What is being done to help?
The Rafflisa Arnoldii is so awesome, Yu-gi-oh and Pokemon made a card!
What can we do to help?
Residents in Malaysia are encouraged
to save the Rafflesia Arnoldii on their private
property and to charge an entrance fee to
every visitor by the government. Scientists
and Environmentalists are developing ways
to recreate its natural habitat to help them
recover from nearing extinction.
Environmentalists are also trying to learn
more about the Rafflesia Arnoldii's life cycle to find new methods for future conservation.
When you encounter a one, try to stay as far away as possible and don't interfere with it as this scares away the flies, beetles and squirrels. Try to reduce climate change as the flower need to have a specific temperature survive. we can do this by riding a bike as a form of public transport, wear more clothing instead of turning on the heater, use energy efficient lighting and even just recycling. We could protest to stop deforestation because that kills flies, beetles and squirrels that pollinate and distribute the seeds of the Rafflesia around the forest.

If you think your mum's brussel sprouts are disgusting, Then you better think twice because we've found something more disgusting. Yes you've got it, It is the Rafflesia Arnoldii. As the great swedish zoologist, Eric Mjoberg said in 1928, "A penetrating smell more repulsive than any other buffalo carcass in an advance stage of decomposition. In fact, it's one of the World's Stinkiest, Largest flower, That's why it's also known as the corpse flower which the locals named. A fully grown one is over 1m in diameter and weighs up to a whopping 10kg. The Rafflesia Arnoldii is a parasitic plant which means they feed on their hosts for nutritional requirements.

The Rafflesia Arnoldii is found mainly on the Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Sumatra, Thailand and the Philippines. It likes to grow in Primary and Secondary forests where there is a tropical climate.
The Rafflesia Arnoldii is considered endangered mainly because of tourists which scares off flies, beetles and squirrels that pollinates and distributes the plant. this results in less flower buds every year. Malaysian people sell the flower buds as traditional medicine to help mothers recover after birth. The Rafflesia is hard to study due to the fact that it's rare to encounter one and it dies in a week after blooming.
