Apollo: “ZERYNTHIA, we have a problem”

The Apollo (Parnassius apollo) has been chosen Butterfly of the Year 2017 by the ZERYNTHIA Association with more than 50% of the votes of the public and the specialists. This diurnal butterfly, associated to mountain systems, is threatened and suffers setbacks in its populations due to several factors, especially the climate change.

ZERYNTHIA responds to the distress call of the Apollo with the organization of outings, activities and informative material to observe it and make it known, and in this way promote its conservation.
