Future for Bog Orchid looks murky

Bog Orchid

Unfortunately it is not just the animal life that is suffering, as the Bog Orchid could also be at risk of dying out in the West Midlands. Despite its name, this plant is simply stunning to observe; with its tiny yellow/green flowers and long tall steam which stands high above ground level, it is lovely looking.

The Bog Orchid is a particularly rare species; so rare, in fact, that it even became a target for thieves in 2001, when they stole the last remaining example of the plant from an area in Norfolk. So surely there must be something we can do to keep this rare beauty in the Midlands?
