Orchids conservation

 

Orchids belong to the Orchidaceae family; they have attractive flowers very likely to be illegally collected from native forests by people and require specific conditions in order to germinate their seeds. These characteristics combined with habitat degradation and a possibly decreasing of natives pollinators develop orchids into threatened species. Consequently, at CDS we are looking for orchid’s conservation; we have individuals that are being reproduced by natural process (insects’ pollination) and by an induced procedure (assisted pollination).

 

Our aim is to reintroduce orchids in areas where they disappeared due to illegally extraction along with an education process to ensure that the locals will conserve them.

In our garden we are working with orchid ecology and taxonomy to obtain scientific information,  

which will help with its conservation
