2023 Butterfly Survey

Stephanie Martinez/USFWS and Friend Of Anahauc Refuge president David Sarkozi were joined by several visitors as we counted and identified butterflies for the 2023 Refuge butterfly survey. Twelve species of butterflies were recorded and the total butterfly count was fifty-two.  Sadly, no monarchs were seen on this year’s survey, so we will save the tags for the next survey.  The dry weather made it very difficult to find specimens this year during our walk through the butterfly garden, down the Willows boardwalk, and along the Hackberry trail.  Thank you to all the visitors who came out to participate for this year’s butterfly survey.

Wildlife refuges are specifically created to preserve habitat for wildlife.  Anahuac NWR is no different, but remains accessible for a variety of uses.  Walking trails, driving loops, boardwalks, fishing piers, and boat ramps are available across the refuge.
