Anthurium andraeanum, La Planada Nature Reserve, Colombia One day after this photo, we saw two guys on a motorcycle speeding out of the exit of La Planada Nature Reserve. The guy on the backseat had a bush full of these flowers in his hand, stolen from the forest.<br />

Upon mentioning this to staff, they didn&#039;t even see it as abnormal behavior. Such is the quality of &quot;conservation&quot; in several parks in Colombia, not even within protected zones does anybody seem to care. It makes you lose all hope.
