Abstract: This case study discusses the project 'People, butterflies and trees' which was funded by ICUN NL. A butterfly farm in Kenya demonstrates how insects can bring sustainable benefits to communities living near forests. A small grant for the construction of a visitor centre and educational activities managed to strengthen the conservation of a biodiversity-rich and threatened coastal forest. The project helped to further raise local incomes from tourism in addition to butterfly rearing and boosted local and international support for conserving the forest in a financially critical period.
