Species to look out for
Welcome to the Cornwall branch of Butterfly Conservation, dedicated to saving wild butterflies, moths and their habitats.
Cornwall Butterfly Conservation is working to establish the present status of butterflies in Cornwall so we can tell which species are increasing or in decline.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cornwall branch.
A project to protect the south west’s threatened moorland butterflies has received nearly £23,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
