Butterflies - you can help them with a gift membership
Give a Gift Membership to Butterfly Conservation
If you're looking for a gift membership for a nature lover or animal lover, how about giving a Gift Membership to Butterfly Conservation?
Funds given to Butterfly Conservation make a big difference to our declining butterflies and moths, and they help make substantial improvements to crucial wildlife habitats. Here are some of their key achievements in 2014 - you can see them all here
Opened a fantastic new nature reserve at Rough Bank in Gloucestershire, home to a wonderful array of wildflowers as well as many butterflies and moths
Silver-studded Blue butterflies were found breeding for the first time on restored heathland at Prees Heath in Shropshire
Larval numbers of Betony Case-bearer moth doubled in the last few years at its last UK site in Surrey
Efforts to save the Duke of Burgundy have been a roaring success in the North York Moors.
The highly threatened butterfly, the Wood White has increased ten-fold in wood across Northants
As always, memberships provide vital funding to charities such as Butterfly Conservation, enabling them to continue with efforts such as those outlined above.
So what do members get?
Members will receive a fantastic pack including a set of collectible postcards, access to our nature reserves, a subscription to Butterfly Conservation's exclusive magazine 3 times a year, plus more!
The gift welcome pack contains lots of colourful and fascinating information, including the latest copy of 'Butterfly' magazine.
