National Moth Week 2021; July 17th-25th

National Moth Week celebrates the beauty, life cycles, and habitats of moths.

“Moth-ers” of all ages and abilities are encouraged to learn about, observe, and document moths in their backyards, parks, and neighbourhoods.

National Moth Week is being held, worldwide, during the last full week of July. NMW offers everyone, everywhere, a unique opportunity to become a Citizen Scientist and contribute scientific data about moths. Through partnerships with major online biological data depositories, NMW participants can help map moth distribution and provide needed information on other life history aspects around the globe.

Whilst in Asia, India and Hong Kong have been long associated with NMW, much of the rest of Asia has been poorly represented. Can you help change that??
If so, please try to organise and register a mothing event for NMW to take place over the week of 17th to 25th July 2021.

Even better - can you coordinate your country's NMW?
NMW is looking for country coordinators to help facilitate Asian and global awareness of moths and their ecological significance. If you think you can help, or would like to collaborate with NMW, please contact the NMW team.

Many thanks and happy (& covid-safe) mothing.
