Dragonfly festival 2023: Wetland Biomonitoring Survey
Our Dragonfly Festival is a unique Citizen Science campaign to highlight the importance and status of dragonflies and damselflies in our country. As part of Dragonfly Festival, a number of wetland locations from Karnataka have been identified for monitoring the Odonata species over a period of 3 months. WWF-India is looking for passionate volunteers to conduct regular habitat and species surveys. From those who apply, we will select a mixed group of volunteers for photo documentation, observation and identification. Volunteers will be required to upload the data on the India Biodiversity Portal. Only a few selected volunteers will be shortlisted for each site. The applicants from Yelahanka, Puttenahalli, Bangalore and Karanji Lake and Tippayanakere, Mysore living closer to the location will be given preference. An e-certificate will be given to the volunteers on the completion of the project.
