"Hi, I am Ladybird and I am five years old. I was born in Navi Mumbai, I was quite vulnerable as a larva and feared moving out of my space. Then butterflies came to my rescue, they told me they will show me the world on their wings. They carried me from one butterfly garden to another, one butterfly habitat to another and one butterfly park to another. I literally grew among butterflies. The butterflies did the magic of spreading joy through plantation and I wallowed under their glamorous shade. Today when I am five I already have my presence in 11 states. I am all hale and hearty, thanks to the butterflies who gave me wing and made me strong."
This is our story and we profusely thank our clients, partners, vendors, mentors, wellwishers and fans who made our story a reality. They stood strong with us throughout our entrepreneurial journey. A heartfelt BIG THANK YOU !
When we started first we were only working in Maharashtra but in 5 years time we expanded our operations in 12 states. This expansion wouldn’t have been possible without the support of local partners. We open-heartedly collaborated with local organisations and individuals, shared our 50% profit with them . What we would have lost in profit was compensated by enriched learning, better branding and healthy network. This model has helped us enormously and we plan to expand further. A big thank you to all our partners

Did you know that moths make great mimics? Some moths are notorious for their ability to mimic other animals. Some have evolved to look like less edible insects, such as wasps, tarantulas and the praying mantis, to avoid being eaten, while others even mimic bird droppings. Did you also know that moths are attracted to beer, ale and lager? Facts like these and more about the not so well known Indian moth family were revealed at the book launch of Field Guide to Indian Moths, by Dr. V Shubhalaxmi. The launch took place at Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment recently. Click here to read more
