The "Butterflies I've Seen" web site allows you to keep track of all of your butterfly sightings. Once you enter your sightings, you can retrieve them by location, by date, or by species. You can print out a list of all the butterfly species you've ever seen - a Life List, or you can print out a list of all the butterfly species you've ever seen at a particular location. At the same time, the sightings you enter provide important information that NABA, the major butterfly conservation organization in North America, will use to help answer scientists questions about butterfly distributions, abundance and conservation. Enjoy the site and the fact that your efforts are increasing our knowledge and helping butterfly conservation.
