Poplar Hawk-moth - Rob Skinner

While our offices have been closed due to government advice on Coronavirus, we are now re-opening our Manor Yard office on a limited basis. All other offices remained closed.

Some staff are now working from Manor Yard, while others continue to work remotely. Our staff remain contactable and should be able to respond on email, although please be aware that some staff have been furloughed.

You can also continue to contact us through our general inquiries number 01929 400209 and email @email

If you joined or purchased a membership with Butterfly Conservation over the last few months - thank you. We are incredibly grateful for your support and commitment to helping us protect our precious butterflies and moths, especially during these uncertain times. With Manor Yard re-opening, we are now able to begin sending out membership welcome packs. However, please bear with us as we catch-up. In the meantime, we are sending out virtual welcome packs which will allow you to access some of the pack materials as PDF documents. We thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, you can contact the membership team on 01929 406015, or at @email

We know this is an uncertain and anxious time for many people. While the health and safety of our staff and volunteers is our primary focus, we will all still be continuing with our work in the fight for nature in the best way we can over the coming weeks. 

We’re encouraging anyone at home with an outdoor space to take some time to enjoy it if they can. Look out for butterflies and moths or plant some seeds for our pollinators.

You can also keep in touch with us through our social media feeds on TwitterFacebook and Instagram for interesting facts, updates, and images.

Why not take part in our world-leading recording schemes for butterflies and moths from your garden too?
