HMS Beagle Embroidered Cushions

99.00

Richmond Birdwing Butterfly cushions. These butterflies used to be abundant between Grafton and the Sunshine Coast. There are records of great clouds of them in Brisbane in the 1930s. Due to the loss of their food source, the Richmond Birdwing vine, they are now vulnerable. These are the smallest of the birdwings and the largest butterfly native to the region. Conservation efforts involve captive breeding and replanting their food source.

Wonderfully soft linen containing a sustainable material recycled from plastic bottles.

30 x 30 cm
