Butterfly Conservation welcomes the Government’s National Pollinator Strategy. The newly published document is a clear steer from Government that the declines in bees and wild pollinators including butterflies and moths are being taken seriously.
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.
The UK’s scariest moth caused pandemonium in a suburban street after appearing unexpectedly in a back garden, just days before Halloween.
One of the UK’s rarest butterflies - the Large Blue - has declined this summer at its Somerset stronghold, Butterfly Conservation 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.
