Come, Celebrate National Moth Week!

Set up your light traps, its time for National Moth Week 2015.

18-26 July, 2015

Moths form one of the largest groups of plant eaters in any ecosystem, and knowing their occurrence and distribution is vital for understanding ecosystems.


India Biodiversity Portal is the Indian partner for the global  National Moth Week citizen science event. Last year, over 2,800 moth observations were uploaded from over 150 locations in India. There are currently more than 10,000 moth observations on the portal and we hope this year's Moth Week will generate even more data on the moths of India.  Join thousands of citizens across the globe and participate by uploading moth observations from your locality to map the distribution of these beautiful creatures.
