          Conservation of Butterflies in South Africa (CBISA), is a section 21 company. Its function is to deal with controversial issues, by setting out guidelines for the "butterfly enthusiast", accommodating their individual rights as well as those rights of the environment, species and related ecosystems. Lined to this site is  a number of projects and project websites of CBISA. 'South African Butterfly Breeding Association' or SABBA, which is one of them - deals largely with the breeding of South African butterflies and all issues pertaining thereto. SABBA heads 'Butterfly Weddings" also a project of CBISA. Butterfly Weddings - deals mostly with butterfly release programs and wedding coordination thereof - keeping in line with the  welfare of  butterflies for any such intended functions.  All projects work  closely together at all  times.

Conservation of Butterflies in South Africa (CBISA) has a major role in that it concentrates on environmental issues relating to all South African butterfly species, their respective habitats and their respective ecosystems' health.
       Continual research and investigations by means of field studies are engaged in, thus seeking preventative methods against the wanton destruction and demise of our South African Lepidoptera. This is not easy -  and takes many hours of in-depth study and research. Many days are spent in  locating various butterfly species that are rare and endangered - to record their life histories - including identifying their host plants  - being photographed and included into our data bank for future reference.
        Many new discoveries have been made in this fashion - of new butterfly species, forms and variations  - including new host plants and specific choices of feeding flowers essential to their health and survival. CBISA has appeared in numerous newspaper articles - radio stations - TV programs, to propagate CBISA's awareness programs.
           The Company is headed by Chairman and Director Earle Whiteley  - who also founded the Company in 1993. With 45 passionate years of butterfly experience  - he has lead CBISA into the future - and incorporated new projects to assist the company in its aims and objectives.
