I have a good news from Poland.
There were two population of apollo butterfly in Polish Carpathians. One of
them in the Tatra Mts was probably extirpated and the other in the Pieniny
Mts was recovered since 1991. We have started fron one population of about
20 adult butterflies. Now after 9 yoears of the project tehre are about 1000
imagoes on more than dozen localities. We still aren't sure that the
population is saved but there is local captive breeding programme.
