If we cannot continue to pay them during this crisis their future is in serious jeopardy. Butterfly farmers use this income to keep their host plant stock full. Caterpillars need these host plants to continue to grow into the beautiful butterflies that are then provided to conservatories like ours.
If we are not able to keep the host plants alive, then we may not have butterflies when this crisis passes and everyone is able to re-open. Without these farms and the stock they provide we cannot continue our mission of conservation and education.
We are asking you to please help us help them. We are very fortunate to have all of you who follow us and participate on our social media platforms. Thank you for being part of our butterfly family, because without you none of this would be possible.
We ask that you consider donating anything you can to this fund. 100% of all donations will go directly to the farmers. The most vulnerable farmers will receive funds first, and then continue to others as their need grows.
