    Hey Folks,

    I've been contacted by staff of The Nature Conservancy, in Alabama. There is strong suspicion that much of the seed from one of the Sarracenia alabamensis sites was stolen last year. If anyone sees people who are distributing lots of seeds of this plant, please contact me directly.

    Thanks!

    Need to check ebay. That's an easy place to unload something fast.
    I'll keep my eyes open.

    Thanks, I'll be on the lookout. It'd be great if the poacher's would get caught. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    Hey Folks,

    Of course, I don't know if the seed heads were poached. I'll contact the land manager of the site to find out the reasons for his suspicions.

    Someone would be a fool to sell endangered seed on Ebay, unless he/she specified no interstate sales!

    Later!
