I am looking for serious ideas on what the average CP grower can do to help stop poaching.
Here are some of mine.
Education of people about the fragile nature of the ecosystems in which CPs grow and the rarity of the plants by sites like this and by CP clubs.
Keeping an eye out for suspicious sales of CPs. Every place that does not specialize in CPs but sells them has had the plant grower on the label from my experience. If they are not labeled we should be asking questions.
Help conservation efforts by jioning organizations like the ICPS or by donating time or money to other conservation groups.
Please add your thoughts. Growing CPs is a lot of fun but seeing them in the wild is so much better! Time is unfortunately running out for a large portion of these plants here and around the world.
Lets try and make a difference, if we don't do it, no one will.
