We have either worked with the following organizations and/or agree
strongly with their conservation approaches. We also provide links
to other resources we have generated that are important to the conservation
of carnivorous plants.
- IUCN: The World Conservation
- The ICPS Journal's two editors (Dr. Jan Schlauer and Dr. Barry
Rice) are both longstanding members of the IUCN's Carnivorous
Plant Specialist Group in the Species Survival Commission, and
have also helped advise on listing issues with CITES.
- Plant Conservation Alliance
- The ICPS has had Cooperator status with the Federal Native Plant
Conservation Committee since 1998.
- Atlanta Botanical
- This organization is helping to manage a number of carnivorous
plant bogs, as well as propagate rare Sarracenia species
protected by the USA's Endangered Species Act of 1973.
- The Nature Conservancy
- This is the USA's most successful private conservation organization
dedicated to habitat protection. The offices in Alabama, Florida,
South Carolina, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania are particularly
active in carnivorous plant sites.
Plant FAQ (Conservation Area)
- The ICPS's Carnivorous Plant FAQ has a large section devoted
to conservation issues and carnivorous plants.
Pines Project (Meadowview Biological Research Station)
- Because of land conversion and habitat fragmentation, the pitcher
plant Sarracenia flava has almost been extirpated from
Virginia. This ambitious project seeks to protect a 100 acre tract
of land and reintroduce Sarracenia flava there. While the
ICPS has not worked with Meadowview, it certainly encourages supporters
to contact and help the formation of preserves like the proposed
one at Joseph Pines!
- ICPS Conservation Statement
- This is a little old and musty and in need of revision. We will
update it as soon as we can!
