It’s really easy to support the atlas – whenever you see a butterfly and know what it is, please submit the record to us here: https://records.biodiversityireland.ie/
If you’re already involved with one of our monitoring schemes then thank you (!) and keep going as you are already making a valuable contribution to the atlas. In addition, we’ve adopted a ‘checkerboard’ design to help evenly spread recording effort across the island of Ireland consisting of high- and low-priority 10 km2 squares.
Over the next five years we need your help in recording butterflies in these squares, but how you survey in each 10 km2 depends on whether it’s a high- or low-priority square. Click on each to find out more and where to send your information:
To find out which high- and low-priority squares are close to you, please take a look at our county plans or click here for a high resolution map.
