A centre in Hertfordshire has successfully bred some rare tropical butterflies. The butterflies called the Heliconius chestertonni are originally from Colombia. Hundreds of the butterflies have been produced from just seven pupae at Butterfly World near St Albans. The butterflies generally have a life span of around nine months. The project is part of the second stage of a £25m project at Chiswell Green, Hertfordshire, to build the world's largest centre for butterfly conservation
