    Still not sure?

    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
    • protect butterflies and moths, which are among the most threatened groups of wildlife in the UK
    • save endangered species from extinction
    • restore natural habitats and create safe-havens for butterflies and moths
    • and help create a world rich in butterflies for future generations to enjoy!
