The lives of butterflies and moths are filled with mystery and intrigue.

From mimicry, parasitism to pollination; plants, arthropods, and larger animals have amazing relationships with butterflies. Uncover the diversity of butterflies, their interactions, fascinating adaptations and how these affect their chances for survival with Maja Bjelic, volunteer at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum with her Master’s Degree in Ecology from the University of Zagreb.
