Chamorchis #alpina ⚘
’Like a lovely #orchid 🥀,
or anything else that's nurtured, marriage prospers and grows, but if it's ignored, it withers’. #MichaelDouglas
This tiny orchid 🌼is difficult to spot, even when it occurs in colonies of many hundreds. However, what it is more important is the negative human impact😤 to its #preservation .
search for a balance 👨🌾 between #nature conservation
and #tourism development
areas is becoming an
increasingly multifaceted problem #worldwide 🌏.
The challenge is to identify management opportunities that
maintain #wildlife 🐿 #resources while
minimising restrictions to human
Chamorchis alpina is locally under numerous anthropogenic threats especially from tourism and the establishment of ski lifts 🚠, new ski paths and recreational activities and mountain sports⛷
Please be careful not to damage the flora 💐when you go skiing🎿.
