Help Butterfly Conservation to take nature’s pulse by joining-in the Big Butterfly Count!
The Big Butterfly Count is a UK-wide effort to assess the health of our environment by comparing the number and type of butterflies, both rare and common (and a few moths) seen during high summer with records from previous years. The count is an ideal opportunity for enthusiastic Citizen Scientists like yourselves to contribute observations which can have a real influence on future efforts to protect some of the rarer and more vulnerable species.
This year the Big Butterfly Count runs from July 16th to August 8th. You can find details of how to participate at the website.
