Big City Butterflies is a National Lottery Heritage funded project, delivered across inner London and now in its fourth and final year. This exciting project delivers a busy and effective programme of conservation and engagement activities, supporting Londoners to discover butterflies and moths through their local green spaces.

We believe our work has never been more important.

Wildlife is in steep decline across the UK and over three-quarters of butterflies and two-thirds of moths are declining. We recognise it needs a great team with a wide variety of skills to tackle the problems facing butterflies, moths and the environment.

Our staff and volunteers are proud to be part of Butterfly Conservation and are dedicated to making a difference to the environment we live in. We understand the importance of maintaining and expanding our expert and valued team of people and offer a range of roles located all over the UK, from the peat bogs in Scotland to the post room in Dorset.
