The Sussex Branch Species Champion Programme, established in 2007, aims to increase our knowledge and conservation effort for those species of butterfly and moth which are most threatened in the county. The Species list is selected by the Branch Committee, but members are welcome to nominate further suggestions.
Each Species Champion seeks to collate a comprehensive record of the behaviour, abundance, range and habitat requirements of their allocated species in the county. Results of these studies will help us to determine the most effective conservation activities for each of the key species.
The Champions will then produce a brief annual summary of the year’s activity, and will oversee the Annual Report entry for that species.
