Press & Media

The Xerces Society's staff is known as a reliable source of science-based advice at the forefront of invertebrate protection, and can provide information and perspective on all aspects of invertebrate conservation. We are glad to give media interviews; please see our media contact information here. For the past several years, Xerces Society staff members were quoted, or our work was mentioned, in thousands of media articles that each year reach over one billion people worldwide.

 

Education

The Xerces Society conducts workshops from coast to coast for a variety of audiences—farmers, land managers, agency officials, gardeners, park managers, and others. Our trainings cover how to restore and enhance areas for pollinators and other beneficial insects; protect at-risk species such as bumble bees, tiger beetles, and butterflies; and monitor the health of streams, rivers, and wetlands. See our events page to find a talk, workshop, or other educational opportunity near you.

 

Publications

As a science-based organization, the Xerces Society produces dozens of publications annually, all of which employ the best available research to guide effective conservation efforts. Our publications range from guidelines for land managers, to brochures offering overviews of key concepts related to invertebrate conservation, from books about supporting pollinators in farmland, to Wings: Essays on Invertebrate ConservationSee our Publications Library for our full list of offerings.
