Butterflies I've Seen
|Presented By||North American Butterfly Association|
|Goal||Help butterfly conservation, keep track of your own sightings|
|Task||Log sightings in the database; retrieve by location, species.|
Butterflies I've Seen allows you to keep track of all of your butterfly sightings.
Once your sightings are logged in the database, you can retrieve them by location, by date, or by species. You can print out a list of all the butterfly species you've ever seen, a "Life List," or you can print out a list of all the butterfly species you've ever seen at a particular location. At the same time, the sightings you enter provide important information that the North American Butterfly Association, the major butterfly conservation organization in North America, will use to help answer scientists' questions about butterfly distributions, abundance, and conservation.
Enjoy the site and the fact that your efforts are increasing our knowledge and helping butterfly conservation!

katespencer 12/15/2016I want to become more aware of and involved in environmental issues and teach my students to know about them and understand them. As an educator, my goal is to support my students so they can be excited about being part of citizen science projects and eventually to design and implement their own citizen science projects.
