Butterfly Conservation

Butterflies and moths are in trouble. Three quarters of UK butterfly species and two thirds of our moths have declined in the last 40 years. This is a warning that can’t be ignored.

Butterfly Conservation is the UK charity dedicated to saving butterflies, moths and our environment. Our research provides advice on how to conserve and restore habitats. We run programmes for more than 100 threatened species and are involved in conserving hundreds of sites and reserves.

Workshops

Workshops

Our workshops give children a chance to make that first all-important connection with nature, to examine butterflies, moths and caterpillars up close and play their part in helping these beautiful insects to thrive in their school grounds and gardens.

Safe habitats

Safe habitats

From the Red Admirals on your back garden buddleia bush to the rare High Brown Fritillary hunkered down on the windswept expanses of Dartmoor, Butterfly Conservation works to make safe habitat for butterflies and moths.
