We have over 1000 members and stretch from Peterborough in the north of Cambridgeshire to the outskirts of London at the south of Essex.
Across these two great counties we are lucky to have a rich tapestry of butterfly and moth habitats including The Fens, ancient woodland, classic chalk grassland and miles and miles of coast.
Our committee and members are active throughout the year and we meet regularly for conservation work parties, informative field trips and a number of various other get togethers.
If you live in our region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cambridgeshire & Essex branch - and we'd love to see you out in the field.
So if you have any questions about butterflies, moths and conservation in our region, please don't hesitate to get in touch with any of us on the committee.

Volunteer with us
Butterfly Conservation relies on the support of thousands of volunteers, and we are always looking for more help inside the office and out in the field. Whether you want to volunteer at a local branch, get outside and help manage our nature reserves, or help with one of our events, we have something for everyone to get involved in! Your time can make a real difference.
