Conservation of Butterflies in South Africa (CBISA) Pleads with any member of the public or business enterprise in South Africa for any donations for the Development of the KZN Butterfly Sanctuary and Research Center to study and house some of South Africa’s most valuable butterfly species. This project will be opened to the general public as soon as we have accumulated the funds needed and the final development of the project has been completed. The land of 12000 sqm has been obtained on which the project will be undertaken. We need your support to help us study and protect or butterflies. So far over 150 of South African butterfly species have become extinct. There are only 762 species remaining. Some of which are extremely rare and on the endangered species list.

Welcome to S.A Butterflies

A place for rare butterflies to be and to be protected as they are extremely rare. Only a few have ever been caught - but through our breeding program we have been able to breed over one hundred and have released them back into the wild. Thanks to the dedication of a few who cared for their survival - a very rare butterfly - has been described.
