About the Butterflies of India project:

100 words or less: India—a megadiverse country—is host to a spectacular number of butterflies, many of them endemic. Butterflies of India is a peer-reviewed biodiversity platform that is designed to disseminate comprehensive information on the biology of butterflies, encourage their observation to study natural history, gather population and distributional data in a centralized database, and spread awareness about butterfly conservation. It is developed by the Indian Foundation for Butterflies ("IFoundButterflies"), a group of butterfly biologists and naturalists. It is a model of citizen science, where ordinary citizens participate in gathering scientific data on a free, yet authentic, online platform on Indian butterflies.
