Maine Butterfly Survey
The Maine Butterfly Survey is a five-year butterfly atlas that leverages professional and citizen scientists to increase knowledge on the status and distribution of Maine's butterflies, as well as geographic priorities for its conservation.
Butterflies play an important ecological role in terrestrial and wetland ecosystems by serving both as pollinators of many wildflowers and as prey for larger species. The Survey will provide critical information about the fragile and ecologically important butterfly population.
