We need YOUR butterfly sightings.

Take action for science and climate change in your own back garden.

This spring we need the help of everyone who is at home, with a garden or outdoor space, during the lockdown period. Each recording is important for our work to conserve UK butterflies.

We know that climate change is making butterflies emerge earlier in spring and some are spreading to new parts of the UK. We need you to tell us where and when you saw them.

How to take part in three easy steps:

  1. Sign up below to become a Butterfly Conservation citizen scientist
  2. Download the iRecord app to your phone
  3. Spot butterflies in your garden and record them on the app
