#CitizenScience – Join our Butterfly Experiment!

Have you seen a numbered butterfly in the Cockrell Butterfly Center today?

We’re doing a longevity study to see how long the butterflies in our center are living. If you see a butterfly with a number on it, snap a picture and post it on Instagram with the tag #CBCStudy so that we can see it!

Those who don’t use Instagram can email us a photo instead. Make sure to include the date you saw the butterfly in your caption so that we can properly record the data!

Thanks for helping with our experiment!
