For everything connected with wildlife, global warming, the natural world and the like.
Let’s kick off with a reminder about butterfly conservation, from, of course, those folk at Butterfly Conservation.Butterflies are in serious trouble as their countryside habitat is lost to industrial and housing developments, intensive farming and roads. This month is critical for many of our rarest species who are set to emerge and begin their hunt for places to feed and breed. Many butterflies struggle to find the right habitat conditions in our changing environment and can only survive in areas where conservation is targeted to help them. Butterfly Conservation manages 33 reserves, providing havens for rare butterflies and beautiful wildlife rich sites where you could come face-to-face with some of our less common species.
From the 19th to the 27th May 2012, is a special Butterfly Conservation week.
