Brisbane’s Big Butterfly Count

An exciting project for community engagement and citizen science.

Brisbane's Big Butterfly Count

Thanks to funding from a Brisbane City Council Environment Grant we bring your Brisbane’s Big Butterfly Count!

  • For all ages and knowledge levels.
  • A BCN project run in cooperation with all catchment groups.
  • Connecting you to butterflies through talks, workshops and field training

For the scientist and others in the know there will be transect walks in representative habitats along with catching, observation and ID. For home gardeners, families, schools etc there will be an easy survey sheet with common butterflies

Butterflies are an indicator species for environmental health as well as providers of joy to those who encounter them!

You can get the brochure for the popular count at your closest catchment group. View it here (PDF).
