- EIG Fundraising tour pictures. Our 2010
fundraising tour finished with enormous success in Slovenia.
The tour was run with 14 participants from the UK, incl.
several members of the Chair of Butterfly Conservation Society.
Despite that we had some bed weather we observed 109 species
of butterflies (with extension), and some other goodies,
like a pair of Wallcreeper with chick. 100% of
the profit going to a Trust, which is buying lands for the
benefit of endangered butterflies, under the supervision
of BC. If you are interested in our 2011 fundraising tour
(most possibly to Montenegro), please
ask for details! Please note that 20% of the profit
of ANY butterflies tour are going directly to the Trust.
