Butterfly Conservation is the UK charity dedicated to saving butterflies, moths and our environment.
Butterflies and moths are important parts of the ecosystem. They are beautiful and inspirational and people enjoy seeing them in their gardens and the countryside. They are sensitive to change and their fortunes help us assess the health of our environment. Two-thirds of butterfly and moth species are in decline. This is a warning that cannot be ignored.
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. We rely on donations, memberships and grants to fund our work.
With your support we can help butterflies and moths thrive.
Butterfly Conservation aims to:
- Our mission is to halt and then reverse the decline of butterflies and moths. By achieving this we can help create a healthier environment in which we all can live.
