Cornwall Branch is now even bigger!

We are delighted to announce further successes in our campaign to increase our membership, and so increase the work we can do for butterflies and moths in Cornwall. When Butterfly Conservation Head Office published the membership figures at the end of 2016, we were pleased to see that Cornwall Branch had by far the highest percentage increase of all the Branches. We remain one of the smaller branches but have just passed another milestone. We now have over 630 individual members! Please do what you can to help us continue to expand.

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.
