Here's how to help conserve our butterflies.  Take part in the Big Buttefly Count, which runs from 14th July - 6th August. Follow this link to see why it's important.

You just have to sit somewhere for 15 minutes and count how many butterflies you see.  Find out more on the Butterfly Conservation website, including a very clear identification chart for the 20 commonest butterflies and moths.
