Event information



This is a challenge for you to do at home or independently

Recording butterflies is a great way to engage with wildlife and what’s more, it can help us monitor the health of the environment. Butterflies are sensitive to change, so recording where we see them and what they are doing can help us keep track of the natural world.

If you want to have a go recording butterfly behaviours for yourself why not take part in our Butterfly Challenge. To find out how to get involved watch the video or find instructions in the Museum of Zoology blog here: https://museumofzoologyblog.com/2021/07/02/butterfly-challenge-2021/
