Could you help stuff newsletters into envelopes on 19 October? Helping the paid staff at Butterfly Conservation Headquarters frees their time to work to help butterflies and moths, like the beautiful ones pictured.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

The office is between East Lulworth and Coombe Keynes, near Wool, which is west of Wareham.

The butterflies in the picture are Duke of Burgundy, which are the focus of the “Dorset Dukes Project”. Dukes have been doing poorly in Dorset in recent years, so the project aims to maintain the existing colonies and enable them to expand.
