Over the course of 3 years, the All the Moor Butterflies project improved habitat conditions and raised awareness of six of our most threatened butterfly and moth species on Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.

The project worked across some of the regions most spectacular moorland landscapes. Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor host nationally important populations of some of our most threatened species. The project focused on the following species:

 Starting in January 2017 and finishing in March 2020, the project delivered vital conservation work to safeguard these special species, whilst also engaging people with their conservation. The project was a tremendous success; achieving all of its aims, delivering much-needed habitat management and engaging new audiences

The All the Moor Butterflies project officers were Simon Phelps, Conservation Officer and Megan Lowe, Community Engagement Officer. 

Over the 3 years they worked with 146 landowners across 201 sites to deliver gains for these special species. Over 5000 people learnt about the fascinating lives of these wonderful insects and were given opportunities to contribute to their conservation.
