Butterfly kits delivered to schools in Wiltshire and Hampshire.
Written in April 2018. Posted in Events
March 2018 saw the delivery of butterfly kits to ten schools across Wiltshire and Hampshire. The kits were given freely to the schools so that they could participate in this project which was being run in conjunction with help from the charity - Butterfly Conservation, Saving butterflies, moths and our environment. The school children will be able to watch painted lady caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies in the habitat provided as part of the kit, before releasing the butterflies into the grounds around the school.
The second part of the project involves Butterfly Conservation, a member of the charity will visit each school and talk to the children about the importance of butterfly and moth conservation, as well as the need to preserve the environment.
Focus in on Life have made a donation to Butterfly Conservation in thanks for their help and support.
