Conserving butterflies

Conserving endangered lepidoptera
Swallowtail butterflies were chosen as the first insect action plan by the IUCN species survival commission because these large butterflies are the most attractive to non-entomologist and have long excited wonder amongst naturalists of all persuasions. Out of a total of 573 species, 170 are considered in need of conservation action, comprising 34 regions of the world.
