The Amateur Entomologists' Society was founded in 1935 as a registered charity run by volunteers for those with an interest in insects (entomology). Many members also have a wider interest in natural history in general. Our objective is to promote the study of entomology, especially amongst amateurs and the younger generation. We publish a bi-monthly journal, The Bulletin, a bi-monthly peer-reviewed journal, Entomologist's Record and Journal of Variation and a bi-monthly magazine for our younger members, the AES Bug Club Magazine. We also issue a Wants and Exchange List, where members can buy, sell or exchange entomological material. Members are encouraged to send articles and observations to the Society for publication in the journals.
