Collector convicted of catching and killing the UK's rarest butterfly
Species to look out for
The Cheshire and Peak Branch was established in 1985 with the aims of promoting the conservation of butterflies and moths, together with their habitats in Cheshire, Wirral, South Manchester and part of the Peak District.
It promotes its activities at local shows and conservation fairs, carries out research and recording work, arranges talks and presentations to interested bodies and is actively involved in supporting the work of other conservation groups.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cheshire and Peak Branch.
Butterflies in towns and cities declining faster than their countryside counterparts
Some of the UK's best-loved birds and butterflies could be wiped out as there is not enough habitat for them to cope with the effects of a warming climate.
The branch has been actively involved in numerous projects over the last few years. Find out more here.
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.
Key Sites & Species
There are many sites across the Cheshire and Peak District area where you can find beautiful butterflies.
