The Ghost Orchid Project is now live, with a website, a Facebook page here, a Twitter feed here and keen volunteers are already signing up to help Sean with the hunt.
If you read about Sean's life-long dream of seeing a Ghost Orchid in Britain, and want to help him realise this in 2014, why not check out their pages and get involved? And you may recognise the name of the Conservation Officer that Sean has signed up to the project: it is none other than Brian "Eagle Eyes" Laney!
Ok, refinding the Ghost is a long shot - this is, after all, one of Britain's most elusive plant - but BSBI botanists are nothing if not intrepid. Go Ghostbusters!
