    Mike King has reported that he has heard from a relieable source that the ENTIRE red tube stand in the ANF was poached. Folks we are talking about 1000s of plants here. Mike had also spoken with a represenative at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens' conservation program and that a simlar poaching occured at this site in 92 when all ther giant red tubes were poached. If indeed this is true, we have lost one of the most incredible sarracenia sites ever. If this is not a rallying point I don't know what is. I am shocked , dumbfounded and angered beyond belief. See for yourself what has been reportedly lost.

    People are talking about this on CPUK forum aswell!
    Reportedly, there were around 4000 plants taken. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    Only around 5-25 were left alone.
    Stupid [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    Why, why take so many?! If there was
    only 1 or 2 taken for a collector who could
    look after them, then I would say it could be excused.
    But 4000!!!!! 8/10 of those plants will get put
    in garden centres, and they will be sold to people
    who cant look after them! They just
    dont care about nature!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    Stupid, money-hungry [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    The only thing they care about is getting money
    in their pockets!! All they care about is money, money
    money! They dont give aabout nature!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    How could anybody do something like that?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
    Well done poachers, you have not only destroyed
    one of the last remaining habitats of these plants,
    you have also killed the majoroty because people will buy them
    them from a garden centre, they will then kill them because they dont know how to look after them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    If those poachers are caught, they should get
    at least 100 years in prison!
    Or even better, death row.

    Gives you a good idea how the NASC could help. If we were in working mode, we could return to the wild what was taken, and rescue the site. The program would have helped us to keep the site active, healthy, and viable. I can only wish that this Conservancy start up would move a heckuva lot faster than a snail. When I read stuff like this, I wonder why this is taking so darn long to get this Conservancy moving. On the other hand, I know why it is taking so much time, and the frustration of something like this, intensifies this frustration. We have to get moving, but I just can't do it alone, and neither can Casper.
