The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation is an international nonprofit organization that protects the natural world through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats. As a science-based organization, we both conduct our own research and rely upon the most up-to-date information to guide our conservation work. Our key program areas are: pollinator conservation, endangered species conservation, and reducing pesticide use and impacts. Scroll on to learn more about our work!
Xerces is working to conserve the full diversity of fireflies by advancing our understanding of their distributions, life histories, and extinction risks; identifying and addressing threats to their populations; recovering populations that have declined; and engaging the firefly research community in conservation.
