We work alongside landowners, local authorities, conservation bodies, businesses and local people to raise awareness about the threats to our butterflies, moths, their habitats and our environment. We provide advice and practical help on how to protect these and other threatened wildlife in the region.

Several butterflies in the region such as the Small Blue and Wood White are particularly vulnerable due to habitat loss and population fragmentation resulting in small isolated colonies which become increasingly susceptible to local or regional extinction. The Wall Brown is now believed to be extinct in the region with no sightings since 2007. Other species such as the Duke of Burgundy are confirmed as extinct in the region, last seen in 1987. Warwickshire also hosts a wide variety of moths including species such as Sciota hostilis which is found nowhere else in the country.

Our members are vital to the work we do in our region. If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Warwickshire branch.
