The Big Butterfly Count

Plan A at M&S

 

BIG BUTTERFLY COUNT - WE NEED YOU!

 

M&S are supporting the Butterfly Conservation's Big Butterfly Count for the third year running!

 

Did you know there are 58 species of butterfly in the UK. Sadly, almost half of these are threatened with extinction.

 

This year is set to be a tough one for butterflies with all the rain we've had.  That means it even more important for us collect this important data so we can track the trends of butterfly populations.

 

It’s so easy to make a real difference.  All you need to do is log onto www.bigbutterflycount.org, download your spotter guide, spend 15 minutes in a green space (preferably in the sunshine!), count some butterflies, then log your sightings! Even if you don't see any butterflies, your results are still useful.
