The IUCN Carnivorous plant specialist group has started a campaign to raise money so that the conservation status of all carnivorous plant species can be assessed. This is a very large job, but an important one as these assessements form the basis of the Red list of endangered species that many governments use for their policy. The job requiers time and money and the work of many specialists. Now the IUCN-CPSG tries to raise enough money so that in the week before the 2016 ICPS conference a "Red list workshop" can be held. The aim of this workshop is to get specialist together and to assess as many species in this short time as possible. This should really make a dent in the "to do" list. Please spread the word and if possible make a donation. The campaign wil have blogs, usefull information and other news bits to accompany this fund raising effort.
You can find it all here:
have a look, navigate the pages and support this massive undertaking.
Here are a couple of pics:
The CPS stand and RHS Silver Medal. A real credit to the members who lent plants and also constructed the stand.
The foot-traffic in the marquee depends on the time of day and the weather but on Thursday it was quite busy for much of the time.
I had a great day talking to members of the public from all over the world. Almost all of them were amazed at the diversity and were interested in their carnivorous habits and ecology.
The nurseries also had a good showing both with gold medals.

It's their open days this weekend. I'll be down in Hampshire anyway, so will probably pop in but not certain when ATM. Anybody else thinking of turning up?
