More than 30 expert bodies signed the letter addressed to Mr Timmermans of the EU Commission of the EU Parliament's recent Pollinator Motion. Butterfly Conservation Europe is one of the expert bodies that claim about the importance of supportive Protection Initiatives which halt the decline in bees, hoverflies, moths, butterflies and other insects in the EU.
EU Grassland Butterfly Indicator (updated under the ABLE project) was mentioned as an evidence of the real loss of invertebrate biodiversity in the last decades.
We believe that the EC should meet this challenge acquiring actions to secure space for insects and manage them without pollutants and other agents. The monitoring process will be vital to achieve these actions and provide references.
