Get involved in the Big Butterfly Count and Moth Night

( Last Updated: 08-03-2013 )

 

Do your bit for the environment and learn more about the moths and butterflies where you live by getting involved with the Big Butterfly Count and/or Moth Night.

The Big Butterfly Count is a nationwide survey aimed at helping us assess the health of our environment.
It was launched in 2010 and has rapdily become the world's biggest survey of butterflies.
An impressive 25,500 people took part in 2012, counting 223,000 individual butterflies and day-flying moths across the UK.

The Big Butterfly Count takes place between 20th July and 11th August 2013.

Organised by Atropos and Butterfly Conservation, Moth Night is the annual celebration of moth recording throughout Britain and Ireland by enthusiasts with local events aimed at raising awareness of moths among the general public.

Each year has a theme, for 2013 the theme is Tiger Moths, although recorders are always welcome and encouraged to do their own thing and the event will take place on different date periods. Events are confined to the warmest months and each event will last for three consecutive nights (Thursday - Saturday). Recording can take place on any one or more of these nights.

Moth Night 2013 will be held from 8 - 10 August 2013.
