Kick Off!

This project was initiated on July 6, 2020 and includes all insect, myriapod, and arachnid observations to date within the Oregon Coast region. The purpose is to organize, tally, and track these organisms as part of a general effort to document and call attention to them. Unfortunately, there has been a general worldwide decrease in insect abundance and diversity, for reasons not fully understood. But factors likely include pesticide use, loss of habitat, and climate change.

I hope that this project encourages people to pay attention to insects and related animals and to think about the important roles they play in our coastal ecosystem. If you'd like to get involved in this project, please contact us!
