Enforcing Nepal’s law to protect orchids

Reshu Bashyal, Kumar Paudel, Amy Hinsley and Jacob Phelps

Orchids are one of the largest groups of flowering plants, and are widely harvested from the wild around the world, and traded as ornamental, medicinal and food products. This includes a large, commercial – but illegal – trade in medicinal orchids across Nepal that is rarely acknowledged or enforced. This Policy Brief highlights this need for Nepal’s wildlife conservation efforts to recognise this gap, and summarises key information that agencies across the country need to recognise in order to protect the country’s orchid flora.
