Conservation Projects

Pearl-bordered FritillaryThe ‘All the Moor Butterflies’ project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), will help to restore and create habitat for the Pearl-bordered Fritillary, High Brown Fritillary, Heath Fritillary and Marsh Fritillary on some of the UK’s most famous moorland landscapes, including Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.

Other species set to benefit included the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary and the Narrow-bordered bee Hawk-moth.
