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.

Dear CP lovers,
since 2007 the German Carnivorous Plant Society (G. F. P. - Gesellschaft für Fleischfressende Pflanzen im deutschsprachigen Raum e. V.) yearly publishes a calendar of photos of carnviorous plants taken by society members and also other skilled photographers printed in very high quality. Some of you surely know about this and have also purchased one or the other of these calendars.
I´m happy tp present you the calendar for the year 2016:
Please visit this page to see previews of the calender 2016
It´s 44 x 32 cm in size, printed on 250 g glossy photo paper, 13 sheets (title plus 12 months), process-colour printing, double loop wire binding with hanger, black back cardboard 380 g, transperancy film covering title
Run: 300 copies
Price: 15,00 EUR (equals £10,64).
Available at: Kalenderversand [dot] GFP [at] gmail [dot] com (delete the brackets and spaces in front of and behind the "@" in your address line, please) :-) I have not activated Spam filters to make sure everyone who seriously wants to get a copy of the calendar will reach me via his email address. But I want to annoy Spam robots, I hope you understand.
1 copy can be sent as extra large letter for 8,00Eur (£6,34) everywhere in Europe (also Switzerland and other non EU countries).
2 copies are best shipped as two extra large letters each for 8,00 EUR everywhere in Europe. 3 - 6 calendars need to be shipped as a parcel for 17,00 EUR postage inside European Union.
Outside Europe it´s of course even more expensive! There are various zones for the rest of the world for the German Post with graduated shipment costs. For example one parcel (3-6 calendars) to the United States will cost 36,00 EUR.
After mail order (email) you´ll receive a reply your order has entried. I have not installed an auto reply so it may take a couple of hours `til I reply. If you shouldn´t receive a reply from me within 48 hours please contact me here via pm. In that case I haven´t received your email order for what reason ever.
By your order please give me the name (at least surname) of the addressee (most likely yourself) and his (your) full address including the country you live in. And please mention the number of copies you wish to have.
Payment is possible via international bank transfer or by PayPal (additional fees are due - normally 1,9% to 3,5% of the total amount you transfer + 0,35 EUR). It´s necessary to pay in advance.
I hope I have announced all relevant details on this calendar and how to get it. If not please ask me I´m a very patient man! ;-)
All important German bank holidays are also mentioned.
On the back side of the title you´ll find an imprint also in German and English which gives you an overview of the photos and the photographers and also details about the shown plant(s) and the location where these pictures were taken.
*Uff* A lot of stuff to tell you.
I hope you´ll enjoy the calendar.
Kindest regards from the calendar team.
