North-East India, famous for its lush greenery and abundance of flora
and fauna, is blessed with the beauty of some very rare floral species,
especially orchids. The climate of the north-east region is ideal for
orchids, making it home to almost 70 percent of the world's orchids.
Of around 1700 species of orchids found in India, about 800 are found
in the northeastern states. These exquisite orchids will definitely
fascinate you with their riot of heavenly colors. Habitat loss, pollution,
introduction of exotic species, over exploitation, commercialization of
agriculture and forestry are the primary reasons for the loss of orchid
diversity today. Let's conserve these wonderful gems of nature that
enhance the beauty of our region.
