Orchids at the Center of Cloud Forest Conservation in Ecuador

Tune in to In Defense of Plants for an orchid conservation success story. Lou Jost has worked to protect cloud forests in orchid-rich Ecuador for decades, and has helped to create seven nature reserves. The reserves are essential habitats for many endangered plants and animals, including fascinating pleurothallid orchids, like Masdevallias, Draculas, and Stelis. If you’re inspired to help his efforts, you can donate to the Orchid Conservation Alliance and FundaciĆ³n EcoMinga. Funds are needed for daily operations, maintenance, security, and to buy more land for reserves.
