Filming for ICON short movie started

At the end of April, the HSPN signed a contract for the production of a sort documentary, which is part of project ICON. Its main aim is to increase awareness of the general public in Turkey and Greece about terrestrial orchids and the need for their conservation. The documentary will include scenes of various species and their habitats in both countries. Its main core will be short narratives by specialist scientists on the biology and importance of orchids, the factors threatening them, and other related subjects. Filming has already started in several locations in Greece, under pressure since flowering is well ahead of time this year, and will be extended to Turkey. The documentary will be completed by the end of the year.
