A close up shot of boreal felt lichen clinging to a rocky surface. The lichen is green and orange. Did You Know?
Boreal felt lichen (Erioderma pedicellatum), the most endangered lichen in the world, was discovered in Denali National Park in 2007. Currently only existing in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Alaska, it grows on balsam fir on moist slopes with moss and is highly sensitive to atmospheric pollution.
