I have decided to TRY and explain the inexcusable NONSENSE which exists and FALSE claims made about 'saving' Himalayan plants by covering 5 projects - some of which I can FULLY identify, the others I think it best, for the time being, to only describe - though the content is accurate and truthful. Each will outline various aspects relevant to conserving wild plants and in the cases of Project A and Project B, how NOT to do things! Yet strangely enough, both A&B have received funding, B substantial and even awards! Yet both projects achieved absolutely NOTHING. They have NOT 'saved' any medicinal plants, which were NOT threatened with extinction in the first place. Yet Project B received accolades..... Funny old world....... Strangely, 'expert' panels, well-known figures, conservation bodies and governments appear blissfully unaware of what is going on.....
