Butterflies and Moths

Butterflies and moths not only enrich our lives with their beauty but they are also good indicators of the health of the environment. Being relatively low on the food chain, they are among the first to be affected when things go wrong. Butterfly Conservation and its branches, including the South Wales Branch, maintain lists of threatened or endangered species and work towards their conservation.

The links below lead to two pages with lists of butterflies and moths which are in this precarious position together with the Local Authorities that have drawn up Local Biodiversity Action Plans for them. There are also links to the main Butterfly Conservation web site for more information about the species.
