The Butterflies of India website is produced as an informal, non-profit collaboration between a few institutions, groups and individuals. The website runs mainly on voluntary efforts and generous image contributions from largely amateur butterfly-watchers. The scientific backbone is provided by more serious amateurs and working scientists who also work on this website on a voluntary basis. See profiles of the Butterflies of India website team members, although the list of regular contributors is much longer, running into hundreds of individuals. In addition, the following institutions/groups support this website in various ways:

Indian Foundation for Butterflies
National Centre for Biological Sciences
Titli Trust
EarthWatch India

Funding, which is meagre compared to other large online databases and biodiversity portals of this nature, is provided largely by individual contributors. At the moment, all the funding goes exclusively towards web hosting fees. Contact us if you are interested in supporting this citizen science website in any manner.
