This Q will be easy for those who live in this area, or visit their regularly, however, I will ask it anyway.... :D

This Butterfly became a conservation icon in the 1990's after a widely publicised campaign was held to ensure its survival, these efforts culminated in the proclamation of a special nature reserve in South Africa and the butterfly is said to be thriving.

Which Butterfly: Which reserve?

Since it is an OQ I'll hazard a guess.

Karkloof Blue, and the Karkloof Reserve?

BTW, good to see you back again, Siobain. :thumbs_up:
