We are delighted to share that WWF-India was invited to participate in the National Moth Week, wherein we organized a moth observation and awareness event at the Secretariat on the 24th July, 2019.
Two moth setups were placed- one near the entrance of the office, while the other was placed in our office’s Butterfly Garden.
Glad to share that our office backyard is home to over 15 species of moths that were recorded in our backyard itself. Topics regarding moth identification, behaviour, breeding biology and habitats were discussed through informative activities such as moth themed quizzes and moth tambola. The participants were fascinated to spot the Beet Webworm Moth which was around us through the event.
We had received registrations from 45 participants, but due to rains only 15 were able to make it. Overall we received a positive response on the event organized and we are grateful to have been invited by National Moth Week and Dr. Shubalaxmi Vaylure to guide us in conducting this event.
