Butterfly Conservation, is a UK based charity dedicated to butterfly and moth conservation.

Butterfly conservation circulates information on butterflies and moths to members and partners, encourages butterfly and moth recording in UK, facilitates contact with recording schemes and encourages the production of local atlases.

It publicises the plight of butterflies and moths which face threats such as habitat destruction, land abandonment and climate change.


There is also a European Butterflies Group established in 2006, which is similar in constitution to a B.C. local branch. The group promotes the study, conservation and enjoyment of butterflies, moths and their habitats in Europe.
