Our latest report provides concrete evidence that projects aimed at conserving butterflies and moths at a landscape-scale have enabled threatened species to flourish after decades of decline.
For more detailed information please read the full report: Landscape-scale Conservation For Butterflies And Moths: Lessons From The UK.
A landscape-scale approach works by improving and connecting land for wildlife through the coordinated conservation management of numerous sites for a range of species across a large natural area.
The report, Landscape-scale conservation for butterflies and moths: lessons from the UK, shows that measures to conserve rare butterflies and moths have helped other threatened species as well as the habitats in which they live.
