Butterfly Help

English Nature and the Highways Agency have co-published a handbook on butterfly conservation aimed at road builders, in the hope that butterfly-friendly habitats can be preserved or created alongside new roads. Our butterflies need all the help they can get. Of the UK's 56 species of butterflies, 26 species must have their habitats protected to ensure their survival. If councils would stop cutting down stinging nettles, that would be a good start.
