Butterflies aren’t just a beautiful sight, fluttering between flower heads.
They are crucial indicators of the health of our environment.
With their acute sensitivity to pesticides and toxins, butterflies' presence, diversity and relative abundance indicate the overall well- being of our ecosystems.
Their message is simple.
A healthy ecosystem or community will always sustain a large number and wide array of butterfly species…
a contaminated or altered community doesn’t.
As our population grows, we exert more pressure upon the land for food, living and working space.
These increased demands alter or eliminate the natural vegetation that butterflies and other wildlife need to survive including us.
In response, B’CON’s conservation efforts, protect and enhance existing natural habitats, restore lost habitats and create special habitats for wildlife.
