  • Title: IABES and conservation
    Descriptive info: IABES Conservation.. In the largest remaining stretch of tropical forest, deep in the hills of Western Jamaica known as Cockpit Country, flies a giant among butterflies, the rare and endangered Homerus Swallowtail (.. Papilio homerus.. ).. Threatened mostly by habitat loss through bauxite mining, this majestic butterfly has become the delicate ambassador of this still pristine habitat.. Today, several partners in conservation have teamed up into an alliance to try and save Homerus and Cockpit Country (.. www.. cockpitcountry.. com.. The project, implemented in the field by the Windsor Research Centre (WCR) of Jamaica, has received financial support from the Dutch Zoo Conservation Fund (DZCF) as well as the International Tropical Conservation Foundation (ITCF,.. shipstern.. org.. In 2006, the International Association of Butterfly Exhibitors and Suppliers (.. iabes.. ) decided to join the effort.. IABES’ role is not only to spread the word about the necessity to preserve butterflies and their habitats - one of the major aims of IABES’ members in the first place -, but also to do something very concrete for a highly threatened butterfly.. Through its Conservation Committee, IABES coordinates activities between partners within the project, and organizes fundraising within IABES.. So far, 14 members have joined the “Save Homerus” campaign, under the motto.. "one institution may raise only a small amount of money, many together, however, can make a huge difference ! ".. Proceedings of the Symposium On The Conservation of Homerus Swallowtail Cockpit Contry.. April 19th, 2010.. View/ download here.. Save Homerus Alliance.. Facts on the Homerus Swallowtail.. In 1988, the Homerus Swallowtail was listed in the World's top twelve endangered species of all categories by the IUCN; protected as an Appendix I species of CITES by the Jamaican Wildlife Act of 1988.. As the largest species of the genus.. Papilio.. in the world and the largest butterfly in the Western Hemisphere, this rare butterfly once inhabited most of Jamaica but has now dwindled into only two tiny populations: an eastern population, found where the Blue Mountains and John Crow Mountains merge, and a western population in the Cockpit Country.. The Homerus Swallowtail larvae feed on.. Hernandia catalpaefolia.. and.. H.. jamaicensis.. , plants which are both endemic to Jamaica, and development takes a long 84 days from egg to the emerged adult.. Its adult numbers fluctuate rapidly, with peaks in July/August each year.. Currently endangering the Homerus Swallowtail at Cockpit Country are loss of forest canopy cover, illegal collecting and most importantly mining.. How can we Save Homerus?.. The IABES Conservation Committee, together with its partners and foremost the Windsor Research Centre of Jamaica, has devised the following mid-term strategy for the preservation of the Cockpit Country of Jamaica, habitat of the endangered Homerus swallowtail.. Definition of boundaries in the field.. It is unclear today what exactly the boundaries of Cockpit Country are or should be, as these have not been legally defined.. It is feared that key habitats for Homerus  ...   the minimal benefits of bauxite mining, and on the fact that the creation of mining roads and the destruction of the pits will represent serious threats to the long-term development of eco-tourism in the region, notwithstanding the threats to aquifer and water quality.. Explore the possibility of land acquisition by the project in the western part of Cockpit Country:.. this area appears more and more to be a key area in the Conservation of Homerus, and there is a chance that it may be neglected in a future definition and protected status of Cockpit Country.. The project aims at creating a private wildlife refuge for Homerus through the acquisition or lease of land in a key area of the western part of Cockpit country (in the Cambridge –Garlands-Niagara-Chesterfield area).. This would help gain a foot in the area and raise awareness for its importance, while also allowing for the construction of a regional information centre for tourists and Jamaican nationals alike.. HELP SAVE HOMERUS !.. If you are an butterfly related institution / IABES member:.. Do passive fundraising, by pledging x $ cent(s) per visitor per year (e.. g.. 30’000 visitors @ 5 cents/visitor = US$1,500 ).. Fundraise in your institution with the help of a display (see below).. Organise special campaigns / events.. Encourage your visitors to become Friends of Homerus.. Link these pages to your website.. If you are an Individual:.. Make a donation and spread the news..
