About Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation is a British charity devoted to saving butterflies, moths and their habitats throughout the UK. Its core vision is to create a world where butterflies and moths thrive and can be enjoyed by everyone, forever.

Learn More About Butterfly Conservation

Did you know that three quarters of the UK’s butterfly species have declined during the last decade? This is a warning that cannot be ignored. Butterflies and moths are key indicators of the health of our environment. They connect us to nature and contribute to our wellbeing, which is why Butterfly Conservation works tirelessly to improve landscapes for butterflies and moths, creating a better environment for us all.

The organisation provides advice to landowners and managers on how to conserve and restore habitats. They 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.
