More than three-quarters of the UK’s butterflies have declined in the last 40 years with some common species suffering significant slumps, a major scientific study has revealed.
Species to look out for
Welcome To The Yorkshire Branch Of Butterfly Conservation.
Founded in 1981, the Yorkshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation is one of the largest geographically as the county of Yorkshire measures approximately 150km north to south and 170km east to west!
From its humble beginnings with eighteen members, the branch has grown steadily to around one thousand members today. If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Yorkshire branch.
Could millions of Painted Ladies descend this summer?
One of the UK’s rarest butterflies has recorded its best year for a decade thanks to 2014’s warm spring weather and work to restore its habitat, a study has revealed.
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.
