Currently, conservation organizations across North America, including accredited zoos and aquariums, are engaged in the captive rearing and reintroduction of endangered butterflies.
BFCI members and partners help provide the critical information used in creating recovery plans for threatened and endangered butterflies; and managing other imperiled butterflies.
The educational mission of the BFCI is to promote, protect and restore native North American butterflies and their habitats through a variety of educational initiatives; and to increase public exposure of BFCI goals, objectives and programs.
