Life Benefactor

Why become a life benefactor?

Many of our most threatened butterflies and moths rely on long-term conservation action to protect and maintain their highly specialist habitat. By becoming a life benefactor you are pledging to support our work into the future. With your help we can:

  • plan for the long-term
  • create sustainable populations that will thrive and continue to grow
  • manage habitat on a landscape scale so isolated and vulnerable species can expand into new areas
  • Recording

    We cannot conserve butterflies and moths unless we know where they live. Butterfly Conservation's work to record and map the distribution and abundance of butterflies and moths is at the heart of our efforts to conserve them, especially the rarest and most vulnerable species.

  • Conservation

    The High Brown Fritillary was declared a priority species after numbers fell more than 80% in 10 years. The Morecambe Bay area is one of its last strongholds and we work with landowners to establish butterfly havens. This work will ensure the survival of the High Brown Fritillary for future generations.

  • Research

    Moths are a crucial part of Britain’s biodiversity. Their rapid decline threatens numerous species of birds, bats and small mammals that feed on them. Butterfly Conservation is working to understand more about moths and is leading the field in moth research and conservation in the UK.

  • Restoration

    Prees Heath reserve is the last sanctuary for the Silver-studded Blue butterfly in the Midlands. We are undertaking a major restoration project to reinstate heathland and grassland vegetation across much of the site, enabling the beautiful Silver-studded Blue and other wildlife to flourish.

    “I’ve worked with Butterfly Conservation for 15 years. The range of work they do is fantastic. Recently I’ve been unable to devote as much time volunteering so felt that by becoming a ‘Benefactor’ then at least extra funding can help.”
