Support Devon's butterflies today
If not Devon, then where?
Butterflies like the pearl-bordered fritillary and marsh fritillary have been lost from much of the English landscape in the last half-century.
Devon is a vital stronghold for these species, thanks to conservation efforts on nature reserves and work with local farmers.
Over the next 18 months, Devon Wildlife Trust has an opportunity to increase prime habitat for some of our most threatened butterflies – and set up what’s needed to maintain those habitats for at least the next 20 years – but we need your help today.
