Transcript of Save the Rare Orchids of Myanmar

Save the Rare Orchids of Myanmar
... pay an exclusive visit to the private orchid garden of Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Su Kyi in Yangon, supporter of this project:
Myanmar's jungles and mountains harbor over eight hundred species of wild orchids:
U Soe Nyunt takes care of Aung San Su Kyi's orchid garden and he has come up with a plan to save the orchids ..
Donors who provide for the replanting costs of 100,000 seedlings or more, have the opportunity to be our special guest on one of these unique expeditions in the jungle and mountains of Myanmar!

If the donor is unable to join our special expedition could alternately gift the opportunity to a person on the expedition waiting list (a member of one of the world's Orchid Societies).
Worldview Myanmar Royal Orchids will propagate and organize the replanting of one million orchids per year in Forestry Reserves throughout Myanmar's jungles and mountains, by permission of the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry.

We are currently seeking support from a select group of orchid lovers towards this unique conservation project, able and willing to co-fund this massive replanting effort.

Myanmar (Burma) is a large country in South-East Asia, similar in size to France or the state of Texas, with jungles, swamps and mountains, and a variety of climate-zones
This abundance of beauty, however, is under threat. The picking of flowers for use in traditional eastern medicines as well as deforestation is taking a heavy toll on the orchid populations.

for details and to plan a Skype-meeting with U Soe Nyunt in Yangon (GMT+6.5), no later than 1 August to be included in this series of expeditions.
Orchids are an important part of the culture and identity of the people of Myanmar.

During her long confinement, Aung San Su Kyi often wore orchids as a symbol of love, beauty and strength.
