URBAN BUTTERFLY PROJECT 2016
Run by Butterfly Conservation
The Urban Butterfly Project has its roots in the Biodiversity in Glasgow (BiG) project 2007-
A nice added value of the project were several new keen butterfly recorders like Scott Shanks and good relationship with the local council – improving public land for butterflies.
The new Urban Butterfly Project runs from 2015 to 2018 across central Scotland. It will deliver dozens of ID training workshops and work with councils and other bodies to improve urban greenspaces for butterflies, e.g. green roofs in Edinburgh for Northern Brown Argus.
Very simple – easy to get involved! Just visit an urban greenspace of your choice three times a year and have a look to see what species are there.
Record and report back to BC using iRecord Butterflies app or iRecord ‘Urban Butterfly Survey’ online.
