Employees at Canon UK’s headquarters in Reigate, participated in the big butterfly count at the end of July. The event which is
organised by the Butterfly Conservation, is a nationwide survey aimed at helping assess the health of the environment in the UK. It was launched in 2010 and has rapidly become the world’s biggest survey of butterflies.
Surrie Everett-Pascoe, Canon UK’s Sustainability and Management Systems Manager, said that the company was thrilled to support the Butterfly Conservation this year. “We spotted over seven species, counting over 60 butterflies in total. We hope that by submitting our results, experts can work out trends in species and help conservationists protect butterflies from extinction, as well as predict variations in climate change,” she added.
