Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

Volunteer for Butterflies

If you're a butterfly lover, why not think about volunteering for Butterfly Conservation and help butterflies in your local area?

There are 32 branches of Butterfly Conservation across the UK, each one managed by a committee of volunteers.  Help your local branch, and you could find yourself leading butterfly walks, and moth events and conservation days, or getting involved with publicity, fundraising, or recruiting members.  Click here to find your local branch.

Or you could get involved in work parties, helping to bash scrub, plant trees or re-build stone walls, usually on the charity's nature reserves.   Essentially, you're doing vital work to restore or maintain butterfly and moth habitats.

You could also help monitor and record butterflies - there's training available to help you. 

And there are four offices who need help with tasks such as database input, making up reports, cataloguing of materials, preparing mailings, and photocopying. 

Of course you can also help butterflies at home in your garden by planting flowers and plants to attract butterflies - here's an idea from Buttefly Conservation:
