IMPORTANT: We can continue to receive your sightings but please remember that, in accordance with current UK Government restrictions, you MUST NOT make any journeys away from home in order to record butterflies and moths, as these would be considered non-essential journeys. Information for Recorders.
More information on recording during the current circumstances can be found on the Butterfly Conservation website.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the South Wales Branch.

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.
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.
