How Can You Help?

We need more information on species distributions, phenology, habitat associations, and threats so we can make informed management and conservation decisions.

Do you live near one of the focal regions outlined on the map to the left? Click on each region to learn which firefly species we are searching for.

You can also survey for fireflies and share your findings from other parts of the United States and Canada.
