We face a £250,000 cut in multi-year government funding for our Threatened Species Programme in England this year. This adds immense strain to our finite resources and endangers butterflies and moths if we cannot continue this work. Please support conservation today to safeguard their future.

    Situation

    UK butterflies and moths face escalating threats. In addition to habitat loss, climate change is now a significant driver of declines, changing habitat quality for species like the Duke of Burgundy or Marsh Fritillary or impacting some directly like the Scarce Pug, under threat from sea-level rise and coastal erosion. Without ongoing conservation action they, and other threatened species are at risk. A £250K shortfall intensifies pressure. Urgent support is needed to sustain conservation effort

    Solution

    Butterfly Conservation scientists excel in butterfly and moth research, integrating findings into conservation. We must adapt conservation strategies to minimise additional threats from climate change. Our expert scientists will research and test new ways that counteract the effects of climate change and influence positive land use initiatives. We will implement research in applied conservation and make positive changes to the future of threatened species of butterflies and moths
