The Xerces Society
What do bees, freshwater sponges, and worms all have in common? (Think back to basic biology…) They are all invertebrates, and these important pieces of the ecosystem jigsaw puzzle must all be protected! That is where the Xerces Society comes in—a society dedicated to the conservation of invertebrates. The society’s website—with vibrant photographs of various invertebrates that flash onto the screen—will certainly catch the eye of visitors, and the many downloadable information sheets will keep them reading for a while. In addition to the many fact sheets, there is also information regarding the society’s programs: pollinator conservation, endangered species, aquatic invertebrates, and butterfly conservation. You can also peruse the informational pages for specific species. Flitting from page to page, visitors will be treated to a wealth of information.
