A fantastic butterfly summer, but why are butterflies so important to us human being? Due to destruction of natural habitats e.g. wildflower meadows and ancient woodlands in favour of intensive farming practices, roads and housing developments that have reduced the majority of their nesting and food sites. Some butterflies have declined so severely that they are red listed and protected under law. The Sågarbo manor is located in an UNESCO biosphere reserve and nature reserve. We have ongoing discussions to reintroduce red listed butterflies on our property and to plant flowers for bees and butterflies are some of our activities for biological diversity.
