Australian Orchid Foundation

Since 1976, the Australian Orchid Foundation has worked for orchid conservation, study, promotion, and education. Run by volunteers, it’s making tremendous progress to benefit native orchids. Australia is home to many fascinating and unusual species, like the Brilliant Sun Orchid, and also numerous varieties of Dendrobium, Pterostylis, and Sarcochilus. They all face threats from habitat destruction, climate change, and invasive plants and animals. To counter these dangers, the Australian Orchid Foundation funds research projects and runs a seed bank. They have an extensive list of publications for sale (note the prices are in Australian dollars.) You can support their work with an online donation (tax deductible in Australia.)
