Join the webinar for instruction on the habitat needs of dragonflies and their conservation.
This presentation focuses on the ecology and habitat of dragonflies and their conservation needs. Specific topics will include the unique habitat requirements of dragonflies and how to manage wetlands to maximize dragonfly abundance and diversity; how the WRP program can be used to create this habitat; and how managing wetlands for dragonflies can help control mosquito larvae. The webinar will wrap up with an overview of the efforts of an international partnership working to understand and conserve the annual migration of multiple migratory dragonfly species across North America.
