What a great opportunity for Brisbane. The universally loved butterflies are ideal to promote biodiversity protection. For Brisbane Catchments Network (BCN) and its member groups, this will be the first fauna group to be assessed on a citywide basis and may well be followed by others. Brisbane's Big Butterfly Count is multi-layered. More information can be found on BCN's website. Here BCN encourages participation in a Popular Count limited to 31 common and easily recognisable.
The Brisbane City Council sponsored project will be run between October and March. Parallel with the Popular Count transect surveys following internationally accepted guidelines will be conducted across Brisbane, and engagement an learning activities and opportunities for all age and knowledge levels will be offered.
