All our new events will be posted here, event reports and news items will be posted on the external Highland Branch website.
Highland Branch covers Highland, Moray, the Western Isles and Orkney and Shetland.
Don't forget to tell us of any butterfly or moth sightings.
Species to look out for
Find out how to record your sightings and who to send them to.
Keep up to date with all the latest news and sightings near you.
Please be aware that all our offices, including Manor Yard at Lulworth, are now closed due to government advice re Coronavirus Covid-19.
The summer of 2019 boosted UK butterfly population to give them their best year since 1997 according to a study.
While this is an uncertain and anxious time for everyone, I want to update you on how the Coronavirus Covid-19 is likely to affect our work and assure you that we are adapting and rising to the challenge of continuing our fight for nature.
As we’re all being encouraged to spend more time in our homes and feeling the worry and anxiety of 24/7 news coverage of the global pandemic, Butterfly Conservation is suggesting a way to look after your mental health by spending time in your garden or outdoor spaces.
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.
