Butterflies bring colour and fun to St Joachim’s

Millie, Alessia, Emily and Sophie want people to use their backyards and schoolyards to help save threatened wildlife species like the Richmond Birdwing butterfly Ornithoptera richmondia. Birds, butterflies and bees add colour and fun while working hard to pollinate your vegetable patch.

The pollinator team produced posters to demonstrate the purpose of their stall at St Joachim’s Annual Fete. Millie and Alessia chatted to  adults and children explaining how to assist the Birdwing and other butterflies by planting more of the right plants and gave them a tour of the Butterfly Garden.

I am very proud of the initiative and commitment shown by these future community leaders.
