Protect The Future

Large Heath

Our wonderful butterflies and moths are disappearing.

Four species of butterfly and over 60 species of moth became extinct last century. 

Three-quarters of the UK's butterflies are in decline.

Butterflies and moths are important because they respond quickly to change, revealing the health of the countryside.

Their falling numbers are an early warning to all wildlife, which cannot be ignored.

With your support we can help struggling butterflies and moths recover and thrive.

Butterfly Conservation is the charity taking action to halt and reverse these declines. We advise landowners, managers and other organisations on conserving and restoring habitats in the countryside, towns and cities. We carry out surveys, monitoring and research, manage nature reserves and promote wildlife friendly gardening.

Our work is making a difference and you can help us do more.
