Eco hero Clive Farrell has championed the cause of the butterfly since he first saw one emerge from a chrysalis. Founder of the London Butterfly House and the Stratford-on-Avon Butterfly Farm, Clive has created an otherworldly kingdom for a huge range of UK butterflies and moths in the grounds of his Dorset home. Here dragons sleep amongst nectar rich plants, and clouds of Small  Blue butterflies dance above his bramblearium. He also has a patch of Belize rainforest, where he breeds and nurtures some of the world’s more exotic moths and butterflies such as the Blue Morpho, as big as a man’s hand. Clive describes these as “the emissaries of the rainforest” with a very important message: don’t destroy our fast dwindling habitats.

The nature reserve manager, Wren Franklyn will give us a guided tour.
