WELCOME TO THE BUTTERFLIES OF INDIA WEBSITE!
This website is a sister of the Moths of India, Cicadas of India and Odonata of India websites. Similar to those websites, it is designed to disseminate comprehensive information on various aspects of the biology of Indian butterflies, encourage their observation to study their natural history and ecology, gather population and distributional data in a centralized database, and spread awareness about their conservation. It is developed by the Indian Foundation for Butterflies ("IFoundButterflies"), an organization of butterfly biologists and butterfly-watchers, who work towards research and conservation of Indian butterflies. Butterflies of India is a model of "citizen science", where ordinary citizens participate in gathering scientific data and building this free resource on Indian butterflies. So get involved! You can contribute butterfly pictures or spot records, write species pages, contribute other articles, or just spread the word.
