Twycross Zoo spent the weekend in a flutter as it welcomed the UK’s very own butterfly whisperer, six-year-old Rebecca Bailey.
Rebecca’s love of butterflies has made her a big name in the world of conservation, with hundreds of followers on YouTube and Twitter. The primary school pupil has been described as an ‘inspiration’ for her passion to tell the world about butterflies and how to nurture them.
On hand to interview the rising star was Twycross Zoo Conservation Club member, nine-year-old Sidney Hills. The dynamic duo got up close and personal with a host of spectacular butterflies in the tropical Butterfly Forest exhibit, gaining an insight into the insects fascinating life cycle.
As a member of the Butterfly Conservation, a national charity headed up by Sir David Attenborough, Rebecca will return to the award-winning conservation charity this summer for the Big Butterfly Count, a nationwide survey aimed at helping assess the health of our environment.
Said Rebecca: “I had so much fun visiting Twycross Zoo, learning all about its wonderful butterflies! Thank you to Sid for showing me around, me and my mum are already looking forward to coming back and making some more exciting videos.”
