Montgomeryshire Moth Group
to the Montgomeryshire Moth Group (MMG) website. Here we identify moth
species found within Montgomeryshire, Wales, and report on the
activities & events of the MMG.
Within the UK, moths are comparatively under-recorded in Montgomeryshire, so it's possible there may be something
new to this part of Mid-Wales living in your own back garden!
If you'd like to get involved and help our understanding of Montgomeryshire moths then please contact us. Our
moth data is also included on North Wales Lepidoptera, a site offering a comprehensive review of Lepidoptera for the whole of North Wales.
Since 1982, the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust has been the leading voluntary organisation promoting wildlife conservation in Montgomeryshire.

National Biodiversity Network (NBN)
The NBN is a collaborative project, but, above all else, it is a partnership, which involves many of the UK's wildlife conservation organisations,
the government and country agencies, environmental agencies, local
records centres and also many voluntary groups. All of these
organisations collect and use biodiversity data and they are all
committed to making this information widely available.
The National Forum for Biological Recording is the independent
voice of Biological Recording in the UK. So what is biological
recording? At its simplest, it is the information on where a species,
habitat or community is to be found, when it was seen and by whom, yet
in combination with information about condition, traits and
environmental parameters, this simple occurrence data is vital to
guiding and monitoring the sustainable development, wildlife protection
and positive measures for conservation in relation to a growing
population, resource stewardship and a changing climate.
The supply of and means to understand high quality biodiversity information are vital - but not always appreciated.

provides a forum for discussion and sharing of knowledge and experience;
promotes the importance of biological information in nature conservation, planning, research and public participation;
