Orchid Conservation International

Orchid Conservation International (OCI) is an independent, non-profit organization that promotes preservation of rare and endangered orchids and their habitats. Orchids have not had a central conservation organization like many endangered animal groups have. OCI was established in the UK to provide a base for worldwide orchid conservation activities. These efforts include public education about orchids, such as this Saturday’s upcoming talk in London. On Saturday, October 17, orchid expert Professor Mark Chase will speak about “Why Orchids Were So Important to Darwin” at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens. OCI has a website redesign underway, but you can still support this worthwhile organization by joining as a member, attending their talks, making a donation, or purchasing their posters.
