Bringing the Barberry Carpet Moth Back from the Brink

Virtual Meet Ups (VMUs)

These Virtual Meet Ups are free webinars and an opportunity to keep in touch and keep learning about invertebrates during lockdown. They are short webinars, comprising of a 30 minute talk from either an FSC BioLinks team member or a guest speaker on a range of topics such as invertebrate ecology, easy to ID species, recording schemes, citizen science projects or tools to help recording, with a question and answer session at the end.

Bringing the Barberry Carpet Back from the Brink

We will have Fiona Haynes joining us in this VMU.  Fiona has been a Project Officer for Butterfly Conservation since 2017 as has worked in the industry since 2003.  As well as working on the Back from the Brink Project for the Barberry Carpet moth, she has been working to conserve the Striped Lychnis moth, Small Blue butterfly and the Wood White butterfly.  The talk is a summary of the Barberry Carpet moth Back from the Brink project.  It will give background to the autecology of the species, reasons for decline, and previous work to help the Barberry Carpet.  It will also detail approaches used in the BftB project, successes and challenges.
