National Moth Week NMW Collaborators Meet NMW Partner – The Xerces Society

Meet NMW Partner – The Xerces Society

Established in 1971, the Xerces Society is at the forefront of invertebrate protection, harnessing the knowledge of scientists and the enthusiasm of local citizens to implement conservation and education programs. Over the past four decades, Xerces has protected endangered species and their habitat, produced ground-breaking publications on insect conservation, trained thousands of farmers and land managers to protect and manage habitat, and raised awareness about the invertebrates of forests, prairies, deserts, creeks, wetlands, and oceans. For more information about the organization and it’s conservation work, visit or connect via Facebook.
