The British Big Butterfly Count

The BBC reports

People are being encouraged to count the number of butterflies they see over the next three weeks – as part of efforts to protect them from extinction.

Butterfly Conservation says two-fifths of British butterflies are under threat.

The charity encourages spending 15 minutes outside counting the number and type of butterflies and moths spotted.

Data collected will help assess the effect of climate change and pollution.

The annual Big Butterfly Count is backed by naturalist Sir David Attenborough – the charity’s president – as well as actress Joanna Lumley and gardener Alan Titchmarsh.
