Thank you for volunteering with us at Butterfly Conservation.

Thank you for volunteering with us at Butterfly Conservation.  You are one of around 10,000 people who give their time to help us achieve our vision, a world where butterflies and moths thrive and can be enjoyed by everyone, forever.  

We are committed to supporting our volunteers, who make a huge difference to butterflies and moths.  To help you, we’re sharing the key information you need to do your role, such as training resources and key documents.

We’ve also created some core training modules, such as Volunteering with Butterfly Conservation.  We have big plans to add to these over time.  Eventually, we we'd love to provide more special interest training, as additional learning opportunities for our registered volunteers.  Core training modules are open to all, but please check the training page for your role to see which specifically apply to you.

Each module has a Training Recap, which is your chance to reflect on what you’ve learnt (or may already know).  We ask that all volunteers complete this at the end of the module, please. 

Role Based Training

Training resources are currently available for the following roles, with more coming soon.  A full list of roles, along with role profiles and supporting documentation for recruitment can be found on the Key Documents page.

In addition, resources for the following roles can be found on SharePoint (login required).  If you require access to this, please request it via your local branch committee.

  • Branch Chair
  • Branch Committee Member
  • Branch Treasurer
