Bio-diversity,Environment Education
Dragonfly Festival 2021 is a unique Citizen Science campaign to highlight the importance and status of dragonflies and damselflies in our country. This year we are conducting Wetland monitoring surveys on Dragonflies as a part of our citizen science activation at various wetlands across India. These Dragonfly surveys will he conducted by youth and volunteers and help provide researchers with insights into the health and diversity of the dragonflies and damselflies of the wetland. As part of Dragonfly Festival, a few wetland locations from India 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.
