Species to look out for
Welcome to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight branch.
A spectacular European butterfly has travelled to the UK and for the first time on record, survived the British winter, Butterfly Conservation can reveal.
On March 9th 2015 work will begin on an exciting project to create a colourful habitat for the rare Striped Lychnis moth on the verges of the B3404 at Magdalen Hill Down, just outside Winchester.
Butterfly Conservation welcomes the Government’s National Pollinator Strategy. The newly published document is a clear steer from Government that the declines in bees and wild pollinators including butterflies and moths are being taken seriously.
