Conservation and restoration of the population of endangered species butterfly (Euchloe tomiris) in Tajikistan

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 220530454) - White tomiris butterfly - Awarded $3,000 on February 07, 2023

The main purpose of this project is to collect data on the current state of the population of this butterfly and its habitat, as well as to develop measures for the conservation and restoration of the number of butterflies with its habitats.

Butterflies are a wonderful creature, and among other insect groups they attract the attention of collectors and poachers the most. In addition, butterflies, along with other insects, participate in the process of pollination of plants. Therefore, the preservation of a population of rare species of butterflies in nature is an urgent task, since the loss of a particular biological species is an irreversible process.
