Part field guide, part education portal, part citizen science app, the butterfly guide aims to inspire people to get outside and do science!

Unfortunately, The Butterfly Guide is no longer being actively maintained. It had a good run: a few thousand downloads and some great feedback from users, but I found it difficult to keep up with all the iOS changes and the annual fee to keep the app in the AppStore. Sad face. All of the tools and resources are still freely available though, so if you're interested in app development, electronic field guides, or butterflies then please get in touch! Happy face.
