"Not everyone can get to the places I go to. I can stay a long time out in the wild, in the mountains or forests. I go in scattered directions. I am very good at climbing trees. Not everyone can climb trees," Hung said. REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "WANG RARE PLANTS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

Yu said some of the plants they collect may have properties people can use, "Then we'll have these species that we can use. Or perhaps one day when a certain habitat needs this specific species, we can provide it." REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "WANG RARE PLANTS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

"I started collecting plants when I was still at school. I didn't used to think it was that important. But since I began working at the conservation centre, I have realised that many (living) things that used to be there, are there no longer," said Hsin-chieh. "So for many things, if you don't conserve them properly then perhaps in the future you'll no longer be able to find them." REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "WANG RARE PLANTS" FOR THIS STORY.
