Conserving nature through science and outreach

Volunteer

All interested people who wish to volunteer are welcome to participate in WildResearch’s programs. To cover operational costs and liabilities, all volunteers are required to become members of WildResearch

We encourage our members to sign up to independently monitor one of our butterfly survey routes. Click here to see a map of our survey route locations. Each route must be monitored at least once in:

  • Early May
  • Mid-June
  • Mid-July
  • Late August

You can sign up to survey a route for an entire summer (four surveys total) or just for a month or two (one survey per month). To find out which survey locations and dates are available, please email our butterfly survey coordinator at butterflies@wildresearch.ca.

No training is necessary, and we will provide you with full instructions, support and even equipment (subject to availability). However, training is available if desired by signing up for our annual BC Butterfly Atlas Workshop or attending one of our monthly (May-August) group surveys.

To sign up for a survey route or group survey, register for our annual BC Butterfly Atlas Workshop or for any other information on our BC Butterfly Atlas program, please email our butterfly survey coordinator at butterflies@wildresearch.ca.
