Dutch Butterfly Conservation
Dutch Butterfly Conservation works on conserving, restoring and developing nature with the focus on butterflies, moths and dragonflies. This is because these insects respond strongly to changes in their habitats, and areas where many different species occur, are also rich in other fauna and flora. They are therefore excellent indicators of the quality of the nature and landscape, the butterflies and moths on land and the dragonflies in watery environments. Their absence tells us something is wrong, whether this is in a nature reserve, the countryside or in a town on road verges or in parks.
