The World of Butterflies

Spring is the prime season where we get to observe a variety of butterflies fluttering around us. Butterflies are some of the most beautiful insects & play a major role in pollination. But with time & concretization of open spaces their numbers have reduced drastically.

To create awareness about the importance of butterflies, pollinators & provide them with suitable habitat right in our balcony by growing butterfly attracting plants for the butterflies to flourish, we conducted a webinar on ‘The World of Butterflies’ on 18th April 2021.

Mr. Shubham Nikam was our guest speaker who is a butterfly lover & currently working as a Consultant at Paryavaran Dakshata Mandal. He not only shared details about butterflies with our participants but also showed some amazing videos on how a butterfly lays egg, and how it struggles & manages to come out of the cocoon. Moreover he also emphasised on the importance of butterflies and butterfly gardening in small spaces.

It was an insightful session and our participants loved all the visuals while some also asked some interesting questions. A few of the participants are also keen to have their balcony butterfly garden in their homes and attract butterflies.

Here are some of the favourite learning & feedback of few participants:

1) Muhammmed Aymaan Lakdawala: Amazing Sesion. I clearly understood everything. Shubam sir was a very polite and soft-spoken person. Thanks for giving me this Knowledge. My favourite learning was the difference between butterflies and moths.

2) Krish Chulanii: The session was a very informative one. My favorite take away from the session was that the butterflies are a sign of good greenery in the surroundings.

3) Sanjay Daramwar: The webinar was really fantastic.The plant list will be very helpful to me to plant in this season.
