The State of Britain's Butterflies - Butterfly Conservation | 100 Acre Wood | Scoop.it

The latest report, "The State of the UK's Butterflies 2011", was published by Butterfly Conservation in collaboration with the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, and summarises the findings of over 10 years of intensive survey, monitoring and conservation effort. The report is based on millions of butterfly records collected by over ten thousand volunteers through the Butterflies for the New Millennium recording scheme and UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme.

 

The report highlights the continuing decline of the UK's butterflies, measured by the changes in their distribution and population levels over a 10-year period and the implications for conservation.
