The mission of the Swallowtail and Birdwing Butterfly Trust is to conserve and protect members of the Papilionidae, a worldwide family of more than 550 species that include the largest, most spectacular and most endangered butterflies on the planet. We achieve this in four ways: we raise financial resources; convene networks and partnerships; catalyse action, and provide scientific and technical support to conservation projects. SBBT promotes and supports World Swallowtail Day each year. On the 8th June 2024 we will be organising our second on-line Conference entitled. Saving Swallowtails: the Apollos and their Allies” Saturday 8th June 2024 Further details will be posted in the future.
