Lichen are one of the most undervalued organisms on the face of the planet. Watch this video to find out why.

Warden Anke Bruin from Vlieland island in the Netherlands reports about the discovery of a rare lichen on two sand dune spots in July this year.

It is Cladonia verticillata. This species had never been seen before on the Dutch Wadden Sea islands.
