The North American Butterfly Association (NABA) formed in 1992 is, by far, the largest group of people in North America (Canada, United States, and Mexico) interested in butterflies. We are a membership-based non-profit organization working to increase public enjoyment and conservation of butterflies.
We are working to save butterfly species throughout North America (recent grants have helped the endangered Schaus' Swallowtail in Florida and contributed to developing a long term survival plan for Monarchs) as well as developing educational programs about butterflies for schools, park rangers, and naturalists. NABA has convinced the U.S. Army to conduct further studies before implementing a plan that would destroy the last known colony of Regal Fritillaries east of the Mississippi River.
Our publications are changing the way people view butterflies, teaching them how to find, identify,photograph butterflies, and create successful butterfly gardens. Your involvement with butterflies will help to bring beauty and satisfaction to your life.
