Butterfly Conservation - saving butterflies, moths and our environment

Small Blue (Nigel Symington)

The Sussex Branch of Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation is a registered charity dedicated to the conservation of butterflies and moths.
The Sussex branch is run entirely by volunteers.

Throughout the year we hold outdoor conservation and educational activities and events across the county. We also manage the Butterfly Conservation reserve at Park Corner Heath in East Sussex where we are implementing a long term plan to create a rich and enduring habitat for some of Sussex's rarest butterflies and moths. Our goals are to

  • Halt and reverse the decline of threatened species of butterflies and moths in Sussex.
  • Increase the numbers of butterflies and moths across the wider landscape.
  • Maintain efficient, scientifically robust recording and monitoring schemes making the best use of modern technology.
  • Influence Government and wider decision-making on the environment for the benefit of all species.
  • Use our influence to support wider initiatives to conserve a healthy environment and ensure a secure future for both wildlife and people.
  • Raise widespread awareness amongst the public and especially young people, about the role of butterflies and moths in contributing to a healthy environment and the need to conserve them now and in the future.

Sussex is a fantastic county for butterflies and moths - we hope to inspire you to help protect and save them too.
