Cincinnati Orchid Society Conservation
threat to orchid survival is
the wholesale destruction of their natural habitat. Orchid habitat
is being rapidly consumed by deforestation, agriculture, industry and
development. Many orchids that once grew freely in nature have all
but disappeared outside of cultivation. Orchid hobbyists and growers
may be the best hope of preserving some endangered orchids.
If you are interested in joining the Conservation Committee please contact Teresa, our conservation committee chair.
