Today it's the 12th day that Greece is burning around Alexandroupolis....the area which we visited in Spring 2022 to find and photograph the False Apollo. It was one of the last European spots of this beautiful butterfly species.
Places which we visited are gone, national forest are gone, a lot of dead animals which were helpless in the flames....it's unbelievable how big this tragedy is. The animals who survived the flames will starve as there is nothing to eat anymore.
This photo below is taken by satellite two days ago....
The two spots of the False Apollo are completely hit by the fire....the only hope I have is that this species hibernates as a chrysalis and that the larval food plant can survive fires and come up again next spring. So let's hope that there are enough chrysalises survived the fire.
A lot of people are busy fighting the fire and to help all the animals that have been rescued; if anybody is looking for a dog please consider adoption from Greece/Alexandroupolis!
The effect of this tragedy will hit us all as this area (including Dadia National Forest) was a green and very important lifeline of our planet. With this lost of, on the 28th of August it was almost 81000 hectares, global warming will go quicker and quicker!
Not the happiest blog but it bothers me that the majority of people live as there is a second planet earth!
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
