    i wonder if they know that the yellow pitcher is S. flava not S. alata....obviously not i guess. HORRAY! this shows that even if you arent a fanatic like us you can still save a beautiful plant!

    I read about this a couple of days ago. While It's very good that some of the plants were saved, it's really depressing that another cp habitat is lost. Only 3% of natural pine woodlands remain, and now it's a little more is gone.

    Its just sad to see how mankind is soo disconnected with life. Being the one species which has the power and the brain to "analyse", "feel", "understand" how this planet works, the diversity and all...and yet, ignorance and pleasure with immediate "money" is all that matters. Well! Initially when I used to hear the end of the world theories, I was like they are all crazy. Now, its definately going to happen by the way mankind plunders nature.
