Butterfly Conservation’s mission is to halt and then reverse the decline of butterflies and moths. By achieving this we can help create a healthier environment in which we all can live. Butterflies and moths are a vital part of our wildlife heritage and are valuable indicators of the health of the environment. Surveys show that they continue to decline at a rate that is faster than most other well–documented groups of plants and animals. Butterfly Conservation’s work is both daunting and complex, but will benefit other wildlife and ecosystems upon which all life depends.
