Improving Knowledge and Conservation of British Moths
The National Moth Recording Scheme (NMRS) is run by Butterfly Conservation on behalf of a large partnership of individuals and organisations, and anyone who records or is able to identify moths can take part. The scheme came out of an earlier project called Moths Count, which at the time was one of the biggest moth projects in the world, and already has collated nearly 30 million records.
Whether you are new to the wonderful world of moths or a knowledgeable enthusiast, NMRS gives you an opportunity to take part in this important exercise.
Moth recording contributes to the knowledge and understanding of moths and is vital for their future conservation. By sending your moth records to the National Moth Recording Scheme via your County Moth Recorder , you will help to build up a picture of the distribution of each macro-moth species across the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands. You can view up-to-date distribution maps from the National Moth Recording Scheme right here on UK Moths. Just select the map thumbnail from below the main image on a species page.
You can find the latest news and get a wealth of information about these fascinating creatures from the Butterfly Conservation website.
