Conserving the Estuarine Moth at long Rock

A wet and cold volunteer task day at Long Rock Nature Reserve, Swalecliffe yesterday.

We’re working with Butterfly Conservation and Canterbury City Council to help conserve the endangered Fisher’s Estuarine Moth. Our job was to cut back bramble engulfing Hog’s Fennel. This rare plant is the only species that caterpillars of Fisher’s Estuarine Moth can feed on.…/fishers-estuarine… #mothsmatter #magnificentmoths
