Bio-diversity,Climate Change,Environment Education
Dragonfly Festival 2021 is a unique Citizen Science campaign to highlight the importance and status of dragonflies and damselflies in our country. As part of Dragonfly Festival, few wetland locations from Pune and Nagpur have been identified to monitor the odonata species over the period of 3 months.
WWF India is looking for passionate volunteers to conduct regular habitat and species survey. We are looking for a mixed group of volunteers for photo documentation, observation and identification. Volunteers will be required to upload the data on the Indian Biodiversity Portal.
Only a few selected volunteers will be shortlisted for each site. The applicants from Pune and Nagpur living closer to the location will be preferred.
An e-certificate will be given to the volunteers on the completion of the project.
