Species Champions

The Upper Thames Branch has developed a Species Champion programme which aims to increase our knowledge and conservation efforts for those species of butterfly and moth which are most threatened in our three counties. Each Species Champion specialises in one of our key species of butterfly or moth and aims to study its behaviour, abundance, range and habitat requirements. Results of these studies will help us to determine the most effective conservation activities for each of the key species.

The following species currently do not have a champion: Dark Green Fritillary, Striped Lychnis. If you would like to take on one of the vacancies, please contact the Species Champion Co-ordinator for more information.

Please select a champion from the menu.
