What Does the Future Hold For Wildlife Where You Live?

Butterfly Conservation runs projects across the UK, each of which targets the butterflies and moths we know are in trouble in that area. A project runs for a set period of time, during which we restore  or create the habitat needed to halt and reverse declines of threatened species.

The primary aim of most of our projects is to restore populations of struggling species across the landscape, both by maintaining them on sites where they still occur and by encouraging them to recolonise sites where they used to occur. This usually mean undertaking management of the habitats on which these species depend, for example cutting back overgrown trees to create a more sunny woodland ride or clearing scrub from a chalk downland to encourage the caterpillar foodplants to flourish.

But land management will only make a long-term difference if that restored habitat can be maintained after the project ends.

Our ambition is to give local communities the skills they need to look after the wildlife they live alongside.

We recruit and train volunteers to monitor butterfly and moth populations and ensure habitat continues to meet their needs for many years to come.

Please donate to our conservation projects and give butterflies and moths a future.
