Dave makes some very good points and a great method for getting these folks to do conservatation work and help preserve these plants.Angry and accusitory e-mails anf calls will get nothing but people defensive to hearing the correct way to do it. We probably all would like them not to do this but the plain and simple fact is they are and it will continue.
1) Do they own the land on which the Sarracenia grow? If so, they have the right to do with the leucos as they wish until such time as they become CITES-I.
Unfortunately, CITES I designation does not protect these plants on private property. I heard of a case where a stand of oreophyla were dozed by the owner even after the land they was told of their importance. The land owner's rights that precedent.
Yes, I did see a stripped field in AL. ALL of the pitchers were taken and we suspect that the land owners permission was not gotten.
