Each year Butterfly Conservation hosts a conference for butterfly recorders in the UK. The annual National Butterfly Recorders’ Meeting provides the latest information on butterfly trends from the national recording and monitoring schemes, new research findings from scientists, feedback from butterfly recorders across the UK and plenty of time to relax and chat over a buffet lunch with fellow enthusiasts.
The full programme is being drawn up.
In the meantime, it will be Butterfly Conservation’s 50th anniversary in 2018 and an exciting line up of talks have already been organised. These include presentations from Dr Martin Warren, who will be taking a retrospective look at the first 50 years of Butterfly Conservation and Professor Chris Thomas who will be considering what the next 50 years hold for the UK’s Lepidoptera.
The meeting is open to anyone involved in butterfly recording and monitoring and is a great opportunity to mingle with butterfly enthusiasts from around the country.
The registration fee is £10.00 per person and includes morning tea/coffee and a buffet lunch, all subsidised from Butterfly Conservation budgets.
Advance booking is essential. To book a place at the meeting, please fill in the booking form on the Butterfly Conservation website.
