CLIMATE change has taken its toll on British wildlife and, along with loss of habitat, our butterflies are one of the many helpless creatures to be affected by this.

However, Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm has found a solution to the decline of the beautiful insects.

They are soon to open a captivating new butterfly garden, which allows visitors to see British butterflies comfortable in their natural habitat.

The garden, situated in a sunny area so to ensure the butterflies and plants maintain full health, will be blossoming with stunning butterfly-attracting plants, such as Midsummer Beauty all year.

The farm are also planting an exquisite butterfly meadow mix – 80 different species from around the world.

The Stratford Butterfly Farm has designed the garden specially to cater for the butterflies’ needs, as well as to be a pretty and pleasant attraction.

Emma Butt, marketing manager of the Stratford Butterfly Farm, said: “Our butterfly garden will be a very special butterfly haven in which butterflies can live and visitors can enjoy.”

Stratford Butterfly Farm have strived to give these delicate creatures a safe environment where they are protected from danger, and the Farm have done this since 1985.

As the UK’s largest tropical butterfly paradise, the Farm will celebrate its 25th anniversary in July 2010.
