If you want to catch sight of many of Britain's butterflies, you'll need to be quick. A report by Butterfly Conservation warns that 24 of 58 species may soon disappear from our shores.
Five more species are threatened with dying out than when the charity last compiled a Red List, 11 years ago. Humans are driving the loss of butterflies by destroying wildlife-rich habitats, says Head of Science for Butterfly Conservation Dr Richard Fox.
