Southern African Lepidoptera Conservation Assessment

Overview

SALCA logo

The Southern African Lepidoptera Conservation Assessment (SALCA) is a two-year project of the Brenton Blue Trust (BBT) and LepSoc. It is aimed at evaluating the conservation priorities of our butterflies and moths (buttermoths) in the southern African region. Results of the SALCA project will feed into the next National Biodiversity Assessment (due 2018) conducted by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), mandated by government to regularly report on the status of South Africa’s biodiversity.
