Orchid Conservation Symposium

Saturday March 26, 2022

9:00 AM-1:30 PM PDT (16:00 - 20:30 GMT)

Message from organisers:

It is a pleasure to announce the Orchid Conservation Alliance’s first-ever Orchid Conservation Symposium. The goal is to acquaint you with our currently-supported reserves and some of the people who are overseeing them. We are currently supporting three organizations: Fundación EcoMinga in Ecuador, Corporación SalvaMontes in northern Colombia, and La Palma in southern Colombia. The symposium will begin with an introductory biodiversity presentation by renowned biologist and OCA member Tom Givnish. After that, the principals behind each of these organizations will give a presentation about the reserves and their recent activities and be available for your questions.
