Butterfly Conservation was formed by a small group of dedicated naturalists in 1968 following the alarming decline of many beautiful butterflies and moths, a decline that the society aimed to reverse. Our vision is of a world rich in butterflies and moths for future generations to enjoy. Butterflies are beautiful and intrinsically valuable. Together with moths, their sensitivity to environmental change makes them valuable indicators of the health of the countryside.
Following the AGM in November 2023, the membership of some committees and some other roles within the Branch have changed as shown here.
The branch is pleased to sponsor the excellent HantsMoths website.
