2023 Symposium booking now open!

After five years and an inevitable delay due to the pandemic, we are delighted to announce that our ninth International Symposium is to be held at Wyboston Conference Centre, Bedfordshire from 13 - 16 April 2023 on the theme: Conserving Lepidoptera in a Changing World.

The Symposium will include the latest science on the ecology of butterflies and moths, and how to conserve them and their habitats in the face of numerous drivers of change.

Keynote speakers include Professor Nick Haddad from Michigan State University, author of The Last Butterflies, which describes his research into some of the US's rarest and most threatened butterflies, and Dr Eva Knop from the University of Zurich, a leading researcher into artificial light at night and the ecosystem services Lepidoptera provide society.

The programme provides opportunities for Butterfly Conservation members to present talks or posters on practical conservation work and contributions will be welcomed. The Symposium will end with a field visit to the Chequered Skipper re-introduction site, which is close to the venue.

The programme is now available to Download here.
