Go Orchids Interactive Website Has Launched


More than half of North America's orchids are threatened or endangered somewhere in their native range. The North American Orchid Conservation Center (NAOCC) just launched Go Orchids, a searchable database where users can see which ones are in danger, find the orchids nearest them...or just look at lots of pretty pictures. Go Orchids is a tool to explore orchids native to the U.S. and Canada. Go Orchids will initially focus on orchids in New England and the mid-Atlantic region. Orchids of the southeast and Alaska will be added early in 2014. This site will be similar to Go Botany, developed by our partners at the New England Wild Flower Society and will eventually include all of the orchid species in the U.S. and Canada.

Platanthera leucophaea, commonly called  Eastern Prairie Fringed Orchid, is primarily distributed in the mid-western  United States and Canada, from Oklahoma to Ontario, with a limited distribution  in the northern mid-Atlantic and New England regions. The species is  considered globally imperiled and is listed as federally threatened; it is rare  or presumed extirpated throughout most of its range. (Photo by Christopher  David Benda)

NAOCC is a coalition of organizations dedicated to conserving the diverse orchid heritage of the U.S. and Canada. Based at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, it also includes the National Zoological Park, the National Museum of Natural History, and Smithsonian Gardens. The U.S. Botanic Garden is the other founding partner. The initial group of public and private organizations that support NAOCC have joined forces with a common goal: to ensure the survival of native orchids for future generations.

Go Orchids has been developed to interact across a variety of platforms, including smart phones and tablets. We encourage you to explore the site.
