The Big Butterfly Count is back

Following the fine spring weather we’ve seen the earliest average emergence of butterflies for the last 20 years. It’s vital that we understand how these weather patterns affect butterflies to help protect them for the future.

By spending just 15 minutes taking part in this year’s Big Butterfly Count, you will help Butterfly Conservation understand how different species are faring in our area, which in turn will help them target research and conservation work where it’s needed most.
