Butterfly Conservation

Saving butterflies, moths and our environment

Cornwall Branch

Following a meeting of enthusiasts in late 1992 it was decided to form a regional branch for Cornwall of Butterfly Conservation. Cornwall’s branch was duly launched on 9th June 1993 at Luckett by Dr Jeremy Thomas at the Duchy of Cornwall Nature Reserve. This was followed by a fascinating illustrated talk in the evening on the life history of the Large Blue butterfly in Britain at Truro Museum.

We hope you will join us in conserving these precious indicators of our countryside by joining our regional branch and enhance your learning experience of the butterflies of Cornwall. Butterfly Conservation is the largest nature conservation organisation concerned with insects in Britain.

Together we can reverse these butterfly declines. Simply by becoming a member of Butterfly Conservation you do something important not just for Britain’s butterflies, but for the planet as a whole.

Join us in our campaign. Help us get nature back in balance.

Visit the Butterfly Conservation National Office web site for details of how to join.
