How We Work

Of the more than one million species of animals in the world, 94 percent are invertebrates. The services they perform, Pollination, seed dispersal, food for wildlife, nutrient recycling, are critical to life on our planet. Indeed, without them whole ecosystems would collapse. But when decisions are made about environmental policy and land management, these vital and diverse creatures are often overlooked. The Xerces Society works to address this situation through advocacy, policy, education and outreach, applied research, and publications.
