Exciting Discovery: Dark-bordered beauty moths, teetering on the brink of extinction in Britain, have been spotted flying at a secret Scottish site where caterpillars were released. This remarkable find follows a successful captive breeding effort by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and other conservation groups.
The recent sighting of freshly emerged male moths in non-lethal light traps offers hope for the species revival. The project, involving meticulous breeding and habitat management, aims to establish self-sustaining populations of these stunning moths. This success underscores the importance of safeguarding lesser-known species for a balanced and thriving ecosystem.
