Insects are a vital element of the ecology, yet there have been reports that their numbers are dwindling dramatically over the globe. When it comes to protecting Lepidoptera species, moths have traditionally been seen as the "poor cousins" of butterflies, receiving far less attention and funding while being just as important to the group. A little over 5,600 of the estimated 11,300 butterfly and butterfly varieties native to India are present in museums and private collections. This deficiency has hindered research into the group and attempts to promote and protect these insects. Assessing the effectiveness of federal programs in this domain. It is recommended that steps be taken to further Lepidoptera study in India.
It is imperative that many in-depth archives of Indian Lepidoptera be created immediately. However, it does not seem that the efforts being made to enhance the Indian taxonomic classification of lepidoptera are having much of an impact so far. The Indian people are requesting that their access to vulnerability research be restored to the level it was before to 1986, when the government got exclusive rights to carry out such research. In 1986, the government received exclusive rights to undertake such research. The commercialization of lepidoptera cannot be used as a justification for essentially shutting down this territory. It is not possible for the government to justify placing a similar limitation on the whole community in order to stop a small number of criminals from functioning.
