Species to look out for
Welcome to the Gloucestershire Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Gloucestershire branch.
Most of our events are either winter work parties or summer field trips. You can see the currently scheduled events at our Dates for your Diary page.
One of the UK’s rarest butterflies has recorded its best year for a decade thanks to 2014’s warm spring weather and work to restore its habitat, a study has revealed.

A statue of a hare has helped raise funds for a newly opened National Nature Reserve in the Cotswolds set to become home to a previously extinct butterfly.
