Looking ahead PDF Print E-mail

We are trying to issue all our films in DVD as soon as we can. It takes time to compile material to complement the films themselves so that each one gives not only good value for money but as complete a picture of the butterflies of the area as we can manage - by including most of the clips "From the Library" ie from the material we shot on location at the time in each country.

Projects for the future include a film on colour in butterflies, which will bring together some of our most eye-catching clips, as well as drawing on film from places not so far seen in the series such as Cuba, Arizona, Australia and Venezuela.

We have now transferred all our material into digital form. As soon as we can, we will have it all systematically indexed, so as to make it more accessible to ourselves, - and others – as a resource for the future.

Who knows when a disaster more total than the 2005 tsunami will make these detailed live records of the world’s butterflies of the late 20th century, and early 21st, a precious and unique resource?

Climate change and the world's butterflies... PDF Print E-mail

Climate change is creeping slowly onwards year by year

Governments came together in Panama in October 2011 for their last meeting before the climate summit in Durban, South Africa in December.

Critical issues need to be addressed if the negotiations are to be successful.

  • Latest figures by the United Nations show the world is heading towards up to 5 degrees warming - with devastating impacts for people and the planet.
  • The poorest people in the world are already being hit by climate change.
  • Rich developed countries are providing little or nothing to help those being affected.
