Marsh Fritillary

foto: Jošt Stergaršek

Marsh fritillary is like a crown jewel because the moment it hatches out its pupa in early summer, it decorates only the most beautiful, colourful and diverse meadows.

And yet, these meadows continue to disappear throughout Europe due to increased farming on one side and cessation of extensive land management on the other. Encounters of marsh fritillary are thus becoming rarer and rarer, but when walking along the wonderful meadows in the Notranjska Regional Park, we can still take pleasure in seeing this orange butterfly seeking its mate above the sea of grass.

It clings to diverse, extensive meadows so loyally that the EU included it on Natura 2000 List and assigned Member States with responsibility to preserve the species and its habitat for future generations.
