Garden Moths Count runs from 21 June ‚Äì 6 July 2008 with the aim of stimulating interest in moths which will ultimately assist in the long term conservation of the rich variety of species we have in this country.
Moths, like their flashier butterfly friends, are great pollinators and make a significant contribution to our ecosystems, but are often overlooked. They are also provide valuable food for many animals and birds, including bats.
