Plant Reserve

Protecting Our Orchids:
Mass-produced hybrids have taken pressure off of wild orchids. But now other factors like habitat loss threaten many wild populations. Nature reserves are often their last refuge.
Scientists in the field and the lab come together to ensure orchids' survival. Conservation groups monitor orchids in protected areas, store seeds and fungi, and study orchids' biology to better preserve them on a changing plant.
