Preserving the Chikanda industry

Mike Bingham in the latest update of the Lowdown Magazine has a fascinating piece on Chikanda, An Unsustainable Industry. Mike solemnly warns that unless action is taken to preserve the industry, "the orchid populations will decline until it is no longer worthwhile searching for them, and those who harvest them will find some more profitable way of spending their time". Well worth the read especially for those that love eating chikanda!
