Something else suffering on the wing.

Most of Britain's butterfly species are in serious decline which is the result of ongoing deteriation of wildlife habitats, pollution and climate change.

However, there is increasing evidence that in the case of some species conservation programes are reversing declines.

Butterfly Conservation has issued a new report. It's the first assessment of the state of Britain's butterflies this century and is based on over 5,000,000 million records from over 10,000 observers. The report can be downloaded from:
