Join us for The Big Butterfly Count: 20th July - 2nd August, 9am - 5pm

Tracking numbers of butterflies is crucial in the fight to conserve our natural world. That’s why taking part in the big butterfly count is of great importance not just for our butterflies but for the wider environment and biodiversity in general. The data from this and other counts will  help us to identify important trends in species that will assist us in planning how to protect butterflies from extinction, as well as understanding the effect of climate change on wildlife.
