Hyndburn Butterfly Project is run by a group of volunteers that are passionate about butterflies. Our aim is to raise awareness of butterfly conservation and recording, and to plant butterfly-friendly flowers, shrubs and trees in the Hyndburn area.

Habitat destruction, climate change and pesticide use are placing butterflies under threat. Urban butterflies declined by 69% between 1995 and 2014 and suffered their fourth worst year on record in 2016. Without taking action to reverse these declines butterflies could disappear altogether.

We’ve recently started work on a new butterfly wildflower meadow in Milnshaw Park, Accrington.  The project has been funded by the Prospects Foundation and EnergieKontor ‘Windfall Fund’, with seeds donated by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust, and agreement to work on the land from Hyndburn Borough Council.  Further details here.
