Why we need your support?

?

Over 75% of British butterflies are in decline.?Habitats have been destroyed on a massive scale, and now patterns of climate and weather are shifting unpredictably in response to pollution of the atmosphere.?

?

The disappearance of these beautiful creatures is more serious than just a loss of colour in the countryside.??Butterflies and moths have been recognised by the Government as indicators of biodiversity. Their fragility makes them quick to react to change so their struggle to survive is a serious warning about our environment.
