We may be a relatively small organisation, but we’ve proven that with the efforts of staff, volunteers, partners and supporters like you, even a seemingly lost cause can be turned around. We have shown we can bring species back from the brink of extinction.
Here are some of the upland moths at risk...
This moth species used to be more widespread, including in some southern counties, but is now restricted to suitable habitat in the central and eastern Highlands of Scotland and is at risk of extinction caused by climate change.
Only found in two sites in north-west England, one in north Wales and restricted to the west coast of Scotland, this moth is at risk from a climate change induced temperature rise.
Found in the Cairngorms, this moth could be at risk of extinction as climate change causes temperatures to rise.
"I do truly believe that, together, we can create a better future. I might not be here to see it, but if we make the right decisions at this critical moment, we can safeguard our planet's ecosystems, its extraordinary biodiversity and all its inhabitants. What happens next is up to every one of us."
- Sir David Attenborough, Butterfly Conservation President
