Who Are Butterfly Conservation?
The Butterfly Conservation was formed by a group of dedicated naturalists in 1968 following the alarming decline of many beautiful butterflies. There are now more than 19,000 members and 32 volunteer branches throughout theBritish Isles; they employ over 50 people including many highly qualified scientists, making it one the world’s largest research institutes for butterflies and moths.
The word “butterfly” is a combination of two Old English words butor (beater) and fleoge (fly).
Butterflies start as eggs, often laid on the underside of plant leaves for protection. Some butterflies will only lay their eggs on a particular plant, meaning that the absence of these plants can greatly affect the continuation of a species of butterfly. Once fully developed the eggs hatch into caterpillars; this often happens in Spring or Summer.
“Butterflies and moths are a beautiful and an important part of theUK’s wildlife.
They are highly sensitive indicators of the health of the environment and play crucial roles in the food chain as well as being pollinators of plants.” – Butterfly Conservation Butterflies and moths are one of the most threatened groups of wildlife. There are currently 59 species of butterflies in the UK; in the last 100 years 4 species have become extinct.
Willow Organic is committed to helping protect Britain’s butterflies & delicate eco-systems.
