What is Orchid Conservation Int. ?

Orchid Conservation International, Registered Charity Nš 1107354.

What is the Orchid Specialist Group?
The Orchid Specialist Group (OSG) is an international network of professional and non- professional volunteers who are committed to the conservation and sustainable utilisation of orchid species and their habitats. The OSG was established in 1984, and now boasts over 200 members from over 50 countries, including many leading scientists, each with expertise in various disciplines that are vital in implementing effective orchid conservation strategies.

When was Orchid Conservation International established?
The idea for Orchid Conservation International was first conceived in 2003 by a small group of orchid experts and enthusiasts, all of whom are members of the OSG. The Trustees are Dr Mike Fay (Chair), Dr Phillip Cribb, Prof Mike Hutchings, Simon Pugh-Jones, Dr David Roberts, Philip Seaton and Dr Peter Tobias.

Why the need for Orchid Conservation International?
Orchid conservation has never had a central Trust to conduct activities such as many animal and bird groups have. It has been established to provide such a base for worldwide orchid conservation activities. Orchid Conservation International's objectives have been laid down as follows:

orchid conservation
1: To promote, for the benefit of the public, the preservation and conservation of rare and endangered species of orchids and their habitats.
2: To advance the education of the public generally about such orchids.
