Marsh Fritillary search launch on Radio Berkshire


Our resident wildlife expert, Jason Ball, will be interviewed this evening on BBC Radio Berkshire. He’ll talk about the Marsh Fritillary butterfly and he’s initiated a BBC appeal for sightings of this very rare species.

Sheepdrove is making an effort to secure a safer future for Marsh Fritillary, which is on the brink of extinction in Berkshire with only one colony remaining. Next week is Save Our Butterflies Week 2008, and the President of Butterfly Conservation, Sir David Attenborough has warned that butterflies are under threat as never before.
