About Me

Welcome to the 33 Butterflies Challenge site!

I'm Anna, a life-long nature lover and city-dweller with a passion for urban wildlife. In 2018, after 14 years working in education, I started volunteering for urban wildlife charities and re-trained in Countryside Management; now I am lucky enough to work in conservation full time.

Up until a few years ago, I hadn’t given butterflies much thought and could probably name no more than a handful of species but with a bit of practise, I realised the immense amount of joy these winged wonders can bring.

Through this blog I hope to inspire others, especially those in towns and cities, to get outside and look at their local greenspaces with fresh eyes – through butterfly-tinted glasses!
