Marching fourth into new fields

View as Webpage

March 22, 2022

At Xerces, we follow the insects, which means our staff and volunteers are preparing to march fourth as spring begins its spread northward. From protecting the hundreds of butterfly and bee species that inhabit deserts, forests, and grasslands across the western United States, to launching a new nationwide Firefly Atlas and a Bumble Bee Atlas in California, we’re hard at work protecting the wildlife and places you value most.
Xerces grows to support conservation for new species, regions

Xerces is the largest invertebrate conservation organization in the world and has the largest pollinator conservation team of any nonprofit. Thanks to continued support from our donors and partners, we have been able to expand our conservation portfolio by adding new staff, focusing on new geographic areas. Meet our newest staff

California seeks volunteers to track imperiled bumble bees
With pollinator populations declining and facing increasing threats, Xerces launched a new initiative to better understand and protect California’s imperiled bumble bees.

Spearheaded in partnership with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Bureau of Land Management, the new California Bumble Bee Atlas will enlist the assistance of volunteers who we will train to collect information around the state on bumble bee species diversity and habitat use. Learn More
