Ladybug Ladybug

Got any ladybug lovers at your house?  How about bug catchers?  Photographers?  Scientists?  Kids with any of the above interests might want to take part in the Lost Ladybug Project.

Researchers at Cornell University are collecting photographs and data from helpers all over to try to find more information about our dwindling population of native 9 spotted ladybugs (and even more rare 2 spotted ladybugs). 

They have all the information on their site about how to find them, collect them, photograph them, submit your data and return them to the wild.  You can also get some nifty teaching materials, download a ladybug song (with lots of ladybug info!), see the map of where they’ve been found so far and lots more.

If fireflies are more your speed (and you just want to count them), check out Firefly Watch too, plus lots of other nature projects that could use your help.

Happy Sunday!
