Delicate colourful butterflies are very susceptible to their environment, any variation in air quality, chemicals or pollution are detrimental to their health. To see butterflies is a sign of clean, healthy air. While there is much publicity regarding industry practices in our Anthropocene Epoch, the many and diverse varieties of butterflies are a positive sign. These beautiful butterflies are a reminder to always consider the impact our practices will have on the ecosystem.
