Found a butterfly in your house?

Many people at this time of year come across a butterfly in their home or shed and don’t know what to do about it. Here is some useful information on why they are there and what to do with them.

Love is in the air!

Saving butterflies in Cornwall has just been given a big boost. Launched on Valentine’s Day is our eye-catching video by Cornwall-based documentary-maker Nina Constable. Watch it below by clicking on play - don’t forget to go full screen, just press f on your keyboard!

If you love being in wonderful countryside with kindred spirits or are concerned about Cornwall’s wildlife, our video shows how you can make a difference.
