Travellers' baglist

BC - 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.

(21, August, 2010)
