Your Own Backyard
Reporting sightings of butterflies seen in your own yard is the best and easiest way to contribute to citizen science!
We have three ways in which you can participate in butterfly citizen science with Backyard Butterflies. There are many opportunities to assist researchers in gathering data. Primarily help is needed by recording butterfly sightings. The information that a citizen reports plays an important part in determining population losses and/or gains, patterns in migration, effects of climate change, and habitat losses.
