  6. Target Orchid Conservation and Protection Rule

Due to the potential to damage habitat and plants, populations of orchids listed as threatened should not be visited for the sole reason of taking photos for this Photo Competition. If you otherwise happen upon populations during your travels, as part of an ADORP team monitoring these plants or have another official reason to visit populations you may submit photos of these species.
