​       Cactus and Succulent Conservation Around the World
    Wendell S. (Woody) Minnich

        Never has there been a time when conservation of our cacti and other succulents has been more urgent! Due to many factors, our precious  succulents, as well as many other plants and animals, are now facing severe problems. Not only are we losing these very special and unique plants, sadly enough, we are aggressively destroying many valuable and irreplaceable habitats.

 Our world is getting smaller and smaller, and as our human population continues to increase, 
we ALL need to do our part to help protect our amazing world of plants, animals, and habitats. 

Conservation is not a spectator sport.
