Cornwall Butterfly Conservation is working to establish the present status of butterflies in Cornwall so we can tell which species are increasing or in decline. If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cornwall branch.
Take look at the incredible work being done by Butterfly Conservation Cornwall's dedicated volunteers to help reverse declines of some of the UK's rarest species of butterflies.
