Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation is the UK charity dedicated to saving butterflies, moths and our environment.

Did you know...

Butterflies and moths are key indicators of the health of our environment. They connect us to nature and contribute to our wellbeing. Three quarters of the UK’s butterfly species have declined during the last decade; this is a warning that cannot be ignored. Butterfly Conservation improves landscapes for butterflies and moths, creating a better environment for us all.

What makes Butterfly Conservation different

Butterfly Conservation maintains and enhances landscapes for butterflies and moths. We provide advice to landowners and managers on how to conserve and restore habitats. We gather extensive butterfly and moth data and conduct research to provide the scientific evidence that underpins our work. We have an established record of reversing declines. We run programmes for more than 100 threatened species and are involved in conserving hundreds of sites and reserves.

Other ways to support

The simplest way for people to support our work is to take part in recording butterflies and moths, there are lots of different types of records ranging from the very simple to more complex. Visit http://butterfly-conservation.org/110/recording-schemes.html

We also regularly run work parties at our reserves and project sites, which people can get involved with.
