However based on native resident and ‘caretaker’ of the park Bob Jarvis, the reserve is making a rare comeback that has even seen new orchids pop up.

Some locals worry that information of ‘new orchids’ ought to by no means be publicised for worry of orchid theft.

So is orchid theft an issue within the south west and why are folks so obsessive about these tiny attractive wildflowers ?
