Heartfelt appeal to help save the planet

Ian Hughes 14th Feb, 2020 Updated: 14th Feb, 2020

A HEARTFELT appeal is being made to Stratford Butterfly Farm visitors to help the planet.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching the Swan’s Nest Lane attraction is offering visiting romantics a marble heart between February 14 and 16 to either keep or present to a loved one.

And in return the farm wants to encourage visitors to pledge their love for the environment by making a green action promise. Pledges to do something positive to help protect the environment can be written and hung in the attraction’s Discovery Zone.

Marketing manager Jane Kendrick said: “Our marble hearts are a lovely keepsake and we want to encourage everyone that visits on those two days to make a pledge and do something positive for our environment”.

But it will not just be humans getting romantic. As the days start to get longer the farm’s butterflies are also beginning to feel amorous and starting to mate once again. Like many other species some of the butterflies practice a courtship routine before mating to discover the suitability of the potential mate – just like humans!
