Butterfly-net (Lepke-háló)

0 reviews

Long term monitoring of butterfly populations, involving young people in nature conservation

Butterfly-net is a project initiated by Őrség National Park Directorate in Vas county, Hungary with the financial aid of Deutsche Bundesstiftung für Umwelt. We engaged secondary school students and involved them in data collection on butterflies. Over the two years of the project, we recruited 24 volunteers, trained them in butterfly biology, identification and conservation. Equipped them with a butterfly net, identification guide and a mobile application developed specifically for collecting monitoring data. Each volunteer counts butterflies in an area nearby his/her home of school using the methodology of the European Butterfly Monitoring Scheme. Although the project ended at the end of 2019, the Butterfly-net programme is going on.
