Press & Media

The Xerces team includes nationally recognized experts on a range of issues, including pollinator conservation, pesticide impacts, habitat creation, and protecting endangered species. We work to understand and protect insects and other invertebrates in all landscapes, from wildlands to backyards.

Our 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. In each of the last three years, Xerces Society staff were quoted or our work was mentioned in thousands of media articles that reached over one billion people worldwide.

For general information about our work, please see our blog, publications, and other information on our website. Follow us on social media for the latest updates, as well.

We’re happy to give media interviews. Please direct all inquiries to Matthew Shepherd, Director of Communications & Outreach: (503) 807-1577, [email protected].

The species was listed on a temporary, emergency basis in November 2001. The Carson wandering skipper received Endangered Species status because of a listing petition by the Xerces Society, and a negotiated settlement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Center for Biological Diversity.
