The pine hoverfly larvae sent over to RZSS Edinburgh Zoo from Nordens Ark, Sweden last year have settled in and are being looked after by our Presentations team. We hope that the larvae will pupate this season, although they have been known to remain as larvae for two seasons.

This work is vital to understand more about this endangered species and how it can be restored across much of its former range, with the Society aiming to play a lead role in saving the pine hoverfly from extinction.
