One of my favorite groups working to conserve orchids is OrchidMania, based right here in San Francisco. Non-profit and all-volunteer, their mission is to support grassroots HIV/AIDS prevention and relief around the world. They accomplish this by using orchids. OrchidMania raises money through regular orchid sales, and donates the proceeds to HIV/AIDS organizations in the USA, Latin America, and Southeast Asia. In the process, they help conserve rare and endangered orchid species in their greenhouses, and promote education about both orchids and HIV/AIDS. Check out OrchidMania’s website to learn more and see how you can support this innovative organization.
