Every observation can contribute to biodiversity science, from the rarest butterfly to the most common backyard weed. We share your findings with scientific data repositories like the Global Biodiversity Information Facilityto help scientists find and use your data. All you have to do is observe, record, and share.

Monarch butterflies only lay their eggs on milkweed. Due to development and spraying, a large percentage of the milkweed they need has disappeared.
The number of pollinating flowers available for them to feed on has dramatically decreased.
