There are over 230.000 species of butterflies and moths in the world. An amazing and breathtaking biodiversity. From half an inch to 12 inches across, they live on average 2 weeks. We know the status of only about 1% of all these species, but most of them are constantly in danger of disappearing. Habitat loss is one of the leading causes of species decline. A recent study estimates that butterflies populations halved in the past decade only. In 20 years, the population of the Western Monarch butterfly declined by 98%.
