Nature has many secrets. We uncovered one last week. A nature lover found a new species of orchid in Japan. Scientists studied the new orchid. They said it grows all over Japan. It is pink and white. Its thin petals look like they are made from glass. A professor said we should look for more new species in common places.

There are 28,000 orchid species. The new orchid belongs to a class found all over Japan. It is in a Japanese poem from the year 759. The professor was happy because the orchid was found in a park. Finding the orchid is good news. However, orchids are in danger. We need to protect nature. Orchids bring colour to our world.
