BeeSpotter needs volunteers to go outside with a camera or smartphone and capture quality photos of bees! Researchers at the University of Illinois are trying to better understand bee demographics in the Midwestern states of Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, & Ohio, and they need your help. Your data will become part of a nationwide effort to gather baseline information on the population status of these important pollinators.
BeeSpotter is a partnership between citizen scientists and the professional science community. The project is designed to educate the public about pollinators by engaging them in a data collection effort of importance to the nation.
