Why Butterflies and Moths Matter

Conserving butterflies can improve the entire wildlife environment and bring more joy into our lives. Butterflies are important in their own right, as all living things have a right to live. Furthermore, we depend on them for food.
Butterflies and moths are indicators of a healthy environment and healthy ecosystems.
Butterflies are the main pollinators of many agricultural crops. All over the world, hundreds of plants are cultivated to serve as food for human beings. These plants need to be pollinated. 70% of the food we eat is brought to us by pollinators. Without pollination, there wouldn't be many plants.

Butterflies can disappear!

There are more than 230,000 species of butterflies and moths in the world. An incredible and dazzling biodiversity. They measure from half to 30 centimeters in diameter and live for an average of 2 weeks.
Only about 1% of all these species are recorded, but most of them are constantly in danger of disappearing. Habitat loss is one of the main causes of species decline. A recent study estimates that butterfly populations have halved in just the last decade.

Protecting butterflies is fun!

Protecting nature and saving butterflies is possible and can be a lot of fun.
Most people live in cities and don't have enough knowledge of nature and that can be pretty bad for all of us!  The good news is that we don't need to be experts in botany to do our part. We invite you to complete some simple missions with us and join efforts to protect the butterflies. Together we can make the difference.
