Many of the images of Sphingidae larvae and adults on
this website come from Dan Janzen who works tirelessly on a project
to raise funds for "rainforest purchase in Costa Rica to add land to
the Area de Conservacion Guanacaste (ACG), where the great majority of
these moths occur as living wild populations. There is NO overhead
charged on these funds. The current ACG land purchase project is
described at the following web site:
http://janzen.sas.upenn.edu/RR/rincon_rainforest.htm". If you
appreciate this website and would like to contribute to the rainforest
conservation project, please consult the link above.
Contributions can be made out to Guanacaste Dry Forest Conservation
