Big Butterfly Count - 14th July - 6th August

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

Help the Butterfly Conservation's Big Butterfly Count

Everyone can take part.

It was launched in 2010 and has rapidly become the world's biggest survey of butterflies. Over 64,000 citizen scientists took part in 2022, submitting 96,257 counts of butterflies and day-flying moths from across the UK.

The Big Butterfly Count 2023 reopens on 1st July ready for the main event between 14th July and 6th August.
