Welcome to Butterflies Australia! We are a citizen science project that aims to get everybody looking at butterflies and recording their sightings. After many years in the works, we are finally launching on Thursday October 24th, 2019.

We have a free phone app (iOS and Android) and a website that will let you send your sightings to us. The apps also include a free digital field guide, and the website will have a feature that lets you explore the butterfly data in a number of ways on a handy map.

We have lots of ideas we are keen to put out there for you. Check out the Fact Sheet section for handy information on how to identify butterflies, how to use the apps, and many other things. Keep an eye on this news section for details on workshops we are running around the country for a chance to hear from the project team about butterflies, and how you can get involved. You can keep up with the latest information in our Facebook group as well.

We are excited to share our enthusiasm about Australia’s amazing butterflies with you, so download the app and get recording!
