|Goal||Help learn more about dragonfly migration in North America.|
|Task||Report movements of 5 main migratory species.|
|Where||Global, anywhere on the planet Dragonfly Migration|
We need your help to better understand dragonfly migration in North America. Although it spans three countries and has been documented since the 1880s, North American dragonfly migration is still poorly understood, and much remains to be learned about migratory cues, flight pathways, and the southern limits of overwintering grounds. Become part of an international network of citizen scientists and help monitor the spring and fall movements of the 5 main migratory species in North America, or report on these species throughout the year at a pond or wetland of your choice.
