      It was a lot of fun, and a learning experience. We had the pleasure of releasing 15 this year. It’s especially fun for the little ones a those of us still a kid at heart.

        There population is down so we can help. But it us fun for kids to see. They eat only milkweed and so the eggs or caterpillars are easily found, fed, and raised. With clean cages and food source we can help prevent predation.

        I see, that’s very interesting, I didn’t know it was so simple. I’ve heard their numbers are declining indeed. Are you raising them regularly? That’s a great initiative 🙂

        We have done a few each year. This year students and others kept adding to our numbers. We gave a few to others to enjoy. As long as there is young milkweed to be found to keep them fed…that’s the biggest effort.

        That’s fantastic to initiate children to nature conservation, hopefully for a brighter future. Are you a science teacher or professor? I believe butterfly populations to be low around Paris were I live at the moment, I don’t see many at all…
