Project Description

Butterflies are in trouble and they need our help!

Working with local residents in Croydon and Bromley, we'll be restoring chalk grassland and creating new homes for butterflies and insects across nature reserves, road verges, housing estates, parks and more. We’ll be using ground-breaking environmental DNA survey technology along the way to find out more about these creatures in order to secure their conservation for the future.

Brilliant Butterflies will create new wildlife havens in south London, providing picturesque and tranquil pockets of chalk grassland 'living landscapes'.

Brilliant Butterflies is a partnership between London Wildlife Trust, Natural History Museum and Butterfly Conservation, funded by a Dream Fund Award, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery,
