Species to look out for
Would you like to come out to see moths and butterflies or volunteer?
Join local experts for a chance to see and learn about our butterflies and moths. Walks to see butterflies take place when they fly, usually in the late spring or summer.
There are volunteering opportunities across Wales - help with habitat management or search for some elusive species.
See 'Events' below to find out more - enter North Wales or South Wales in the area box .

Scientists from Britain and Ireland who have been involved in compiling the newly published Atlas of Britain and Ireland’s Larger Moths have revealed that our moths are on the move.
As gardeners, we always tend to have one eye on the present, while looking forward to the future. It rarely stops, except in the depths of winter when everything that can be done, is done.
