The UK Ladybird Survey site can be used by children at school and at home. The Ladybird Survey aims to facilitate the recording of all the UK's ladybirds. Ladybirds belong to the family Coccinellidae of which there are 46 species in the UK and 26 of these are recognisable as ladybirds. The UK Ladybird Survey website has apps to download that provide children with a powerful set of tools to find out about ladybird and contribute to real science. This includes exploring the ways in which the invasion of the harlequin ladybird Harmonia axyridis is threatening our native species.
