Elephant and Small Elephant Hawk-moths

We believe our work has never been more important.

Wildlife is in steep decline across the UK and over three-quarters of butterflies and two-thirds of moths are declining. We recognise it needs a great team with a wide variety of skills to tackle the problems facing butterflies, moths and the environment.

Our staff and volunteers are proud to be part of Butterfly Conservation and are dedicated to making a difference to the environment we live in. We understand the importance of maintaining and expanding our expert and valued team of people and offer a range of roles located all over the UK, from the peat bogs in Scotland to the post room in Dorset.

We currently have two vacancies working on our Kent Magnificent Moths project.

This project focusses on the celebration and conservation of some of the UK's rarest, most threatened and most beautiful species, across a stunning variety of landscapes in the south east of the UK. This ambitious project takes place across six key landscapes in East Kent, working along the coast, in woodlands and on the Downs where eight declining and vulnerable moth species have been selected to be the focus of conservation action.
