National Butterfly Awareness Day 2016

Many of us like to see butterflies fluttering around flowers. It is unimaginable to see the world without the colorful butterflies. To preserve the population of butterflies and to promote the industry, a non-profit organization called The Association For Butterflies announced the National Butterfly Awareness Day.

Why This Day is celebrated?

The main purpose of National Butterfly Awareness Day is to raise peoples’ awareness of butterflies and their importance as pollinators and their place in nature. To accomplish the importance of this day, the first Saturday of June is declared as National Butterfly Awareness Day by AFB.

The Association For Butterflies works for the wellbeing of butterflies through conservation, research, and promotion of butterfly gardening and butterfly farmers. This day is set aside for all people throughout the United States to celebrate butterflies.
