Earth Challenge 2020: Insects

Earth Challenge 2020: The Insects Widget In recognition and celebration of the importance of bees to global biodiversity, today Earth Day Network, the Wilson Center, and the U.S. Department of State released a state-of-the-art mobile application which utilizes citizen science to collect data on bees and other insects around the world. Comprehensive data collection is urgently needed to help fill in the significant gaps in knowledge so experts can figure out how to combat insect decline and protect pollinator species. The data collected through Earth Challenge 2020 will support ​the research and monitoring of insects worldwide, beginning with a focus on bees. Users can take a photo of any ​species of bee they see, upload it, and tag the picture by genus and location. Data from the app will be used to train artificial intelligence that can benefit a range of conservation goals. This data will then be aggregated and visualized.
