Improve the market share f or community-raised butterfly pupae supplied to flight houses in Europe and North America. This will, in turn, improve the livelihoods and benefits from conservation for communities engaged in butterfly farming. In conjunction with the butterfly exhibit industry, explore opportunities to stage displays focused on individual hotspots promoting the overall awareness of these biodiversity reservoirs and the threats they face.
