Are you a butterfly enthusiast?
You are not alone. There's an active community of butterfly observers in Canada and we want to hear from you!
If you've been poking around this website, it's a fair bet that you're already interested in butterflies. Perhaps you've seen some of the species featured here around your neighborhood. You might be surprised to know that there are folks out there (myself included) who are keen to have you report your sightings.
An online Atlas for the Butterflies of the Maritimes is being compiled and additional observations are always appreciated. You don't necessarily need to be an expert, and eButterfly provides an easy way to enter your observations into a large database where they will be available for a variety of research projects.
