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 three decades, we have protected endangered species and their habitats, 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, and oceans.


Through our Pollinator Conservation Program staff work across the country to educate farmers, land managers, and the public about the importance of pollinators and establish habitat protection and management as keys to their conservation. In the last year we have directly reached over 1,500 agricultural professionals and farmers through trainings, workshops, and other outreach events. We also developed a web-based Pollinator Conservation Resource Center that provides one stop shopping for anyone who is trying to implement pollinator conservation projects.  Our work has now incorporated pollinators into agricultural conservation programs and provided technical assistance and training across the U.S. This has led to thousands of acres of habitat improvements for pollinators.

Xerces is and organization devoted to "invertebrate conservation",meaning butterflies, bees, and many overlooked species that are not "charismatic megafauna". It does a great job and deserves more support.
