Garden Butterfly Survey
Butterflies are some of our most beautiful garden visitors and they also have important roles to play in plant pollination and the food chain.
Butterflies are highly sensitive indicators of the health of the environment and we know many species are declining rapidly.
By counting and identifying the butterflies that visit your survey garden throughout the year, you are sharing essential data that help us understand how they are faring in gardens across the UK.
Importantly, your Garden Butterfly Survey sightings and information about the garden you are surveying will enable us to provide better, evidence-based advice on how to manage gardens to benefit butterflies throughout their life-cycle from egg to adult.
