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.
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.
The UK’s scariest moth caused pandemonium in a suburban street after appearing unexpectedly in a back garden, just days before Halloween.
There are no events scheduled for the requested area. Field events are mostly held during the summer months and are arranged in the early Spring.
