    The rafflesia has been dubbed “the giant panda of the plant world” because it is extremely rare and difficult to reproduce. Currently, all species of the Rafflesia are under threat of extinction due to deforestation and harvesting for local medicine. However, countries such as Malaysia has enacted laws in certain states, including Sarawak, classifying it as a “totally protected plant” which prevents any activity which may endanger its survival. They are also safeguarded in national parks by conservation groups, and indigenous tribes who are being trained to become custodians of this rare flower.
