The IUCN Orchid Specialist Group Works for Conservation

The IUCN Orchid Specialist Group does vital conservation work. IUCN stands for the International Union for Conservation of Nature, a global organization which strives to preserve nature and promote sustainable development. Thousands of experts volunteer their time to support IUCN’s projects, including the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The Red List scientifically assesses the extinction risk for plants, animals, and all living creatures. The Orchid Specialist Group (OSG) was first created in 1984 to focus on orchid conservation. Thousands of orchid species have been studied, and many are listed as endangered, close to extinction, or already extinct. Most orchid species still need to be surveyed.

Orchid experts can volunteer with the OSG by contacting them online. Everyone can enjoy their wonderful orchid photo gallery, newsletters, and informative info on their website. Their work is essential to save endangered orchids.
