Exbury Gardens houses a fantastic array of butterflies in their natural habitats which is why we're taking part in the Big Butterfly Count this year.
Butterflies react very quickly to changes in climate and this nationwide survey is helping to assess the health of our environment.
Simply pick up your identification chart free of charge from Exbury's Visitor Entrance and count butterflies for 15 minutes during bright weather on any single day between 20th July - 12th August. Then once you get home, just upload your results to the Big Butterfly Count official website. Or alternatively, you can hand in your identification sheet to a staff member at our Visitor Entrance and we will upload the results for you.
