British Dragonfly Society

The British Dragonfly Society (BDS) was founded in 1983 by a small group of dragonfly enthusiasts and scientists. The Society has grown substantially since that time and the current BDS membership of about 1,500 is spread the length and breadth of the country, as well as into Europe and beyond. We have three main aims: to carry out and support research on dragonflies, to conserve dragonflies and to engage the public with dragonflies and their wetland habitats.

Philip Corbet Award Fund

Applications are invited from young odonatists for grants from the Philip Corbet Award Fund. This fund was established from donations to the BDS and named in recognition of Philip's contribution to the Society and odonate biology. Grants of up to £250 are available for each year.

  • Applicants must be young people (anyone up to the age of 25 may apply) who are engaged in, or wish to establish, a small odonatological research project.
  • Research topics may be wide-ranging and could involve almost anything that may further our biological or ecological knowledge, or support the conservation of British dragonflies.


  • Grants will not normally be awarded for projects outside the UK.
