20 years preparing for the ‘Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Re-introducing the Yellowish Sedge Skipper Butterfly to the Adelaide Plains

The Yellowish Sedge Skipper Butterfly hasn’t been seen on the Adelaide Plains since the mid 90’s. Changes in land use, clearance and pesticide use are believed the reasons for its disapearance.

This story of the ‘Very Hungary Caterpillar’ began with an idea that shone like a little egg on a leaf in the light of the moon.  Once hatched the ‘Very Hungrary Caterpillar’ sat through meetings, made friends, looked at maps, went to school and dreamed of far away places like Yorke Penninsular.

Although the story of the ‘Very Hungary Caterpillar’ is far from over he is extremly excited that he now has the opportunity to spread his wings and turn into a beautiful sort of yellow and somewhat brown butterfly.
