What we don’t know and what you can do about it: how amateur contributions are vital to moth research.

March 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

What we don’t know can hurt us and in this talk we will look at some of the biggest gaps in our knowledge of moths and why it is important to fill these gaps.  We will explore the major role that amateurs have played through history right through to modern day contributions.  Advice will be given on what you can do from documenting biodiversity in your backyard, to monitoring invasive species, to documenting life histories, to describing new species (yes you too can describe a new species).

Members can watch and ask questions on Zoom. Non-members can watch on our Facebook site but cannot ask questions.
