The Orchid Project in Rwanda

Rwanda, a small, central African country, is home to over 240 native orchid species. The Orchid Project in Rwanda is an initiative of the African Community & Conservation Foundation (ACCF,) and works to save the country’s orchids, and restore them to their native habitats. Massive deforestation in the area has endangered plant and animals. The group has already rescued many orchids, including saving thousands of Cynorkis anacamptoides from destruction. They’re also trying to conserve varied forms of the beautiful Leopard Orchid, Ansellia africana. You can support their efforts by donating to the ACCF. It’s a non-profit organization, so contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
