In October 2012 the Carnivorous Plant Specialist Group (CPSG) was created as one of about 100 Specialist Groups that form the Species Survival Commission of the IUCN. Run by volunteer experts and with data input from experts and amateur conservationists from around the globe, the mandate of the CPSG is quite broad and is expected to involve conservation projects of all kinds. In some cases existing projects wishing to become IUCN approved may receive guidance or advice from the CPSG. But the initial and most urgent goal of the CPSG is to re-assess all species of all genera of carnivorous plants for the IUCN Red List. Without correct classification, imperilled species cannot receive the appropriate attention to conserve them. Chaired by Robert Cantley and with Sir David Attenborough as Patron, the group is in the process of growing. We invite you to not only like us but als sign up on the ‘Get Involved’ tab of our website www.iucn-cpsg.org. Here you can contribute your knowledge, or just follow our progress by receiving forthcoming Newsletters. The degree of involvement you may have is up to you and there is no membership fee. Contact: email@example.com.
Great! We actually hit 1000 members in the IUCN-CPSG discussion group!
Thanks for approving :)

Hello from Bangladesh!
This is my first attempt to find out what I've got in my country. I didn't see any post from here (Bangladesh) though. Very much grateful to Marcel van den Broek and Joseph Griffin for their unconditional support towards my learning. Here is a wild UTRICULARIA from our country. Don't know much about the sub-spices. Asking for the name....
Congrats! We need to ID this Utric. 1 (1 month ago)Johnny Myob:

Here are endemic Drosera neocaledonica pics from the southern part of the island, the biggest plants I ever seen.
Subtratum is 100 % laterite (from altered peridotite) and iron sand /rocks.
Great shots. Almost never see in-situ pics of this species. CP gold right here ! 2 (2 months ago)Matt Smith:
yes, great shots. but do a google search of drosera neocaledonica - there are a decent number of pics of plants in habitat, and they seed to be variable. (2 months ago)Julien Bénard:
Sure, try endemia.nc/en/ ! but I bet you'll never find as big clones as these crazy ones. I walked on paths and cross hundreds of drosera but this population is unique. (2 months ago)Matt Smith:
this form looks similar to the form i grow (2 months ago)
