Our partner, citizen science website Project Noah kicked off National Moth Week 2015 by featuring our logo moth—the Io moth (Automeris io)! For every day of National Moth Week, Project Noah will be featuring a fun fact about a species of moth.
From Project Noah:
National Moth Week is a global citizen science project that emphasizes the ecological and aesthetic value of moths!
This year, National Moth Week is spotlighting the Sphingidae family found throughout the world – commonly called hawk moths, sphinx moths and hornworms.
National Moth Week 2014 was a great success on Project Noah with a grand total of 2197 moths! You can view a map of all moths spotted during National Moth Week by following this link:
