“Butterflies are vitally important. Their presence acts as a barometer of the health of our environment. Their ongoing decline tells us that all is not well in the British countryside.
Future generations may not be lucky enough to see butterflies in the same numbers we will experience this summer.

“If you care about butterflies make sure you take part in the Big Butterfly Count this summer.”
