There are many opportunities to assist researchers in gathering data. Primarily help is needed by recording butterfly sightings. The information that a citizen reports plays an important part in determining population losses and/or gains, patterns in migration, effects of climate change, and habitat losses.
We have listed a few citizen science projects that we recommend to others. Most projects involve making observations and reporting them to a database. A good reason to learn and develop butterfly identification skills!
