OCA

The Orchid Conservation Alliance promotes the conservation of orchids and orchid habitat around the world.
Andy’s Orchids is a proud sponsor of the OCA, and you can be one too.
For every purchase you make at Andysorchids.com, a portion of the sale will be donated to this noble cause: the preservation of orchid species and their habitats. Learn more..

The Orchid Conservation Alliance, founded in 2006, promotes the conservation of orchids and orchid habitat around the world. Currently we have reserves in Brazil, Ecuador, and Colombia, however, we are open to orchid conservation anywhere. Preservation of natural orchid habitat preserves the orchids, their pollinators, their genetic diversity, and other fauna, as well as the birds, frogs, insects, reptiles, and mammals in the forests where they live.

Why the OCA is an Alliance

It is important to have a broad base of supporters come together, to form an Alliance, to protect orchids. Here’s why: Together we can do much more than any one member alone, and together, the alliance will survive the departure of any one member. So far, over 550 individuals and numerous orchid societies have joined the OCA.
