Seems to me that the government doesn't have a charter for this.  What 
about the Lily group or even PBS developing a program to propagate and 
distribute such species, and working for a legal way to handle protected 
species.  This could start with rescue of threatened populations.  It 
would require someone to come up with a well-defined program, and an 
adequate means of distribution.  Could this be a more effective way to 
go about the protection of endangered plants?
