Help us take nature's pulse by joining the Big Butterfly Count.

The Big Butterfly Count is a UK-wide survey aimed at helping us assess the health of our environment simply by counting the amount and type of butterflies (and some day-flying moths) we see.

How to take part

  1. Download our handy butterfly ID chart or free app for iOS and Android to identify and record the butterflies you spot.
  2. Between Friday 15th July and Sunday 7th August choose a place to spot butterflies and moths. Watch for 15 minutes. Then record which species you see.
  3. The Big Butterfly Count 2022 reopens on 1st July ready for the main event between 15th July and 7th August. Look at our fascinating interactive map to see how your data is contributing to conservation science and research.
