If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Highland branch which covers Highland, Moray, the Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland.

Our activities include recording butterflies and moths, organising events, field trips and work parties, and publishing annual newsletters, most of which can be downloaded from our Newsletters page.

Don't forget to tell us of any butterfly or moth sightings.

Social Media

You can find us on Facebook at Butterfly Conservation - Highland Branch

There is also a private Facebook group Highland Moths & Butterflies which enables people to share photos, ask each other for help with identification and generally chat about moths and butterflies.

You can also find us on Twitter BC Highland on Twitter

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.
