Calgary Pollinators Update

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Calgary Pollinators iNaturalist page and thank you to everyone who has posted an observation of a Calgary Pollinator. Our project officially began in June 2021, and currently includes over 6000 observations made from 2008 to 2022 - that's amazing! As we get ready for the next season of pollinators, I want to introduce myself, my research interests, and tell you all about the future of the Calgary Pollinators Project. My name is Justine, I have recently started my Master's Degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Calgary. My project is about how urbanization impacts the relationships between native plants and pollinators in Calgary. I am also interested in collecting data on pollinators supported by native plants and if native plants support a more biodiverse group of pollinators than introduced plant species. I will be using the data from the Calgary Pollinators Project for my research.

Our goal is to hit 10,000 observations by the end of summer 2023, and hopefully all of you can help make that happen!

Thanks for reading!
