E-BUTTERFLY is an international, citizen science project focusing on biodiversity, conservation, and education.
The website includes background information about the project and a place to submit observations. The data section provides species maps, summary tables, flight time charts, lists for comparison, observation lists, and species profiles. A Help area contains answers to frequently asked questions.
Librarians will find this project to be an effective way to get youth involved with a real-world science project. Combine the website with books and other resources as part of a STEM learning learning center. Create a butterfly garden in an outdoor space at your school to attract butterflies for the project.
