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.
Could millions of Painted Ladies descend this summer?
A project to protect the south west’s threatened moorland butterflies has received nearly £23,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Join the Cornwall Branch of Butterfly Conservation on our last practical conservation day of the season!
Will you be in Truro on Saturday 5th December? Visit our 'pop-up shop' in the RBS on Green Street where we will be selling butterfly/moth/insect related Christmas gifts and cards to raise money for Butterfly Conservation! Free crafting for children while you enjoy a tea or coffee and cake...

The Cornwall Branch hold a number of events throughout the year at various sites across the county.
Take a look at these photos to see some of what we do - these were taken at our violet planting day with the Forestry Commission at Cardinham Woods, near Bodmin in March 2015.
