Butterfly Conservation (a splendid charity devoted to helping our UK moths and butterflies!) is trying to raise money in order to publish a new, up-to-date moth atlas (real moths will not be auctioned in pursuit of this aim!). This atlas publication is to celebrate the charity’s 50th anniversary! This is the first complete atlas of Britain and Ireland’s larger moths and will provide the latest distribution maps and details of almost 900 moth species. To raise the funds required, Butterfly Conservation are hoping people will sponsor a moth via their online auction site. The sponsor’s name or dedication will be printed in the Atlas in the section relevant to that particular moth species. All the auction information is on Butterfly Conservation’s moth auction page.
Why not help Butterfly Conservation achieve its goal, and have a bit of fun on the way!
