NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH
The Xerces Society is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redesigned website. The new website has greatly improved design, accessibility and additional resources. With hundreds of pages of information, the website is a vital resource for those interested in invertebrate conservation. In addition to summaries of the Society's conservation programs, the site offers access to dozens of freely downloadable factsheets and conservation guidelines.

Some highlights of the new site include:
- The pollinator conservation resource center offers information for farmers, landowners, gardeners, wildland and park managers, and golf course superintendents on how to provide habitat for pollinator insects.
- Robert Michael Pyle's Butterfly Big Year blog, which details his year-long odyssey crisscrossing the United States in pursuit of as many different species of butterflies as possible, plus information on the Xerces Society’s Butterfly-a-thon.
- The opportunity to sign up for the Xerces Society enewsletter to receive periodic email updates on invertebrate conservation issues.
- Profiles of over one hundred rare and at-risk invertebrate species, each with information on life history, status, and conservation needs. The profiled species include a broad array of invertebrates from Susan’s purse-making caddisfly—a critically imperiled species found in only one creek in Colorado—to the rusty-patched bumble bee, which was once very common throughout the east and upper Midwest of the United States, but has steeply declined in recent years.
With contributions from many renowned invertebrate photographers, the Xerces Society worked with Green Tangerine Media to develop this site.
