Corfu butterfly

Corfu Butterfly Conservation is a project initiated by island visitors, concerned residents and scientists from all over the world. Our goal is to stimulate informed interest and produce robust scientific data that can be used to influence policy and protect habitat for the benefit of Corfu’s butterflies and the wider natural environment.

Our immediate aim is to record the distribution of butterflies on the island through a citizen science project called the Corfu Butterfly Survey. Ultimately, we intend to publish an atlas of Corfu Butterflies based on this information.
