The Orchid Conservation Coalition (OCC) is a grassroots organization made up of people, orchid societies, and orchid businesses dedicated to raising awareness and money for orchid conservation. It is through networking that people and organizations concerned with orchid conservation can be the most effective. The exchange of information among participants and non-profit orchid conservation organizations will make conservation a real aspect of orchid growing for the average orchid grower and orchid society. They can actively engage in and contribute to orchid conservation.
1% for Orchid Conservation (1%FOC)- Orchid Societies and businesses that participate in 1% FOC commit to budget 1% or more of their net revenue towards in situ orchid conservation projects of their choice. Through 1% for Orchid Conservation we want to create a network of orchid societies and businesses to raise money for in situ orchid conservation. The Orchid Conservation Coalition does not take donations or distribute money.
