Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation’s mission is to save butterflies and moths, and thus our environment. It has raised awareness of the extent of declines of many species of butterflies and moths, and has created widespread acceptance of the need for action to combat these declines. It has a network of several thousand volunteers co-ordinated by its local branches.
