Donate your leftover currency to Butterfly Conservation

Butterfly Conservation is the UK charity dedicated to saving butterflies, moths and our natural environment. Founded in 1968, we are a leading authority on the conservation of these beautiful creatures – key indicators of a healthy ecosystem– and we have achieved numerous successes for them locally, nationally, and internationally. website:

Time is running out.

Nature is in crisis. Half of the British butterfly species are now on the Red List as threatened with extinction and encounters are now becoming infrequent for many people. But it doesn’t have to be like this. We are on a bold mission to restore biodiversity, mitigate climate change and halve the number of threatened butterflies and moths by 2026.
We work to create a world where butterflies and moths can be enjoyed by everyone, everywhere. We need your help. Join our mission and save butterflies, moths and our environment.

Some of our successes:
• After becoming extinct in Great Britain in 1979, we successfully reintroduced the beautiful Large Blue.
• We reintroduced the Chequered Skipper in 2021. This beautiful butterfly can be seen by the public for the first time since going extinct in Great Britain in 1976.
• We have slowed the decline of the Wood White and are now working to reverse and repopulate.
