Join us at a Xerces event!

In addition to assessing the data, the authors also provide examples of success stories in insect conservation and propose actions that can be taken to address insect declines—from the national level, to home gardeners. Read more.

We at Xerces extend condolences to Robbin’s family, and wish to express our gratitude for his immeasurable contributions to bumble bee conservation. Robbin’s work lives on in the countless people he has taught and inspired.

With staff across the U.S., we offer events at a variety of locations and on a range of topics, including monarch monitoring, creating pollinator habitat in agricultural and urban environments, and more. We'd love to have you! Find an event.
