Talk | A talk or slide show presentation.Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.19th Century naturalists were fascinated with the richness and beauty of Australian butterflies. Joseph Banks' collection of Australian butterflies remain an important record of Lepidoptera. By the early 19th century, butterfly collecting was regarded as an educated hobby, with many women artists given the task to scientifically illustrate these beautiful insects. Butterflies are a powerful reminder of the beauty and fragility of the natural world, particularly with threats from chemicals, land clearing and climate change. View
