Dragonfly, Damselfly, and Odonata Organizations
These groups are dedicated to learning more about dragonflies and damselflies,
as well as helping to conserve them:
- Migratory Dragonfly Partnership
- To better understand and conserve North America's dragonfly migration, dragonfly experts, nongovernmental programs, academic institutions, and federal
agencies from the United States, Mexico, and Canada have formed the collaborative Migratory Dragonfly Partnership (MDP).
Regular monitoring and centralized reporting among participants across three nations will help us answer some of the many questions currently
surrounding dragonfly migration and provide information needed to create cross-border conservation programs to protect and sustain the phenomenon.
This site will allow you to submit dragonfly migration observations.
- This site is designed to make available what we know about the distribution, biogeography, biodiversity, and identification of Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) in the Western Hemisphere.
- Worldwide Dragonfly Association
- The WDA is the world's foremost organization of researchers, practitioners and enthusiasts dedicated to the study and conservation
of dragonflies and damselflies.
- Dragonfly Society of the Americas
- This society makes available known information about the distribution, biogeography, biodiversity, and identification of
Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) world-wide .LEARN MORE >
- British Dragonfly Society
- The British Dragonfly Society (BDS) was founded in 1983 by a small group of dragonfly enthusiasts and scientists. The Society has
grown substantially since that time and the current BDS membership of
about 1,500 is spread the length and breadth of the country, as well as into Europe and beyond. LEARN MORE >
- International Dragonfly Fund
- Our aim is to support projects dedicated to the exploration and protection of the dragonflies of our world and their habitats.
Organizations in the United States
- Minnesota Dragonfly Society
- Ensuring conservation of Minnesota's dragonflies and damselflies through research and education.
- Ohio Dragonfly Survey
- This project is to update information on the distribution and abundance of Ohio dragonflies and damselflies. It is an update from the first Ohio Odonata Survey which ran from 1991 to 2000, and resulted in the publication by the Ohio Biological Survey of "The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Ohio."
- Slater Museum of Natural History (Washington)
- The museum's primary goal is to provide a well-curated collection of specimens to be used for research and education by the communities to which it belongs: the University of Puget Sound, the Puget Sound region, and, in a broad sense, the world. They have an extensive dragonfly collection.
- Wisconsin Dragonfly Society
- The Wisconsin Dragonfly Society was formed to study and protect the Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) in Wisconsin,
whether they are resident or migrating through. It fosters appreciation, study and enjoyment of Wisconsin dragonflies and
damselflies and the aquatic habitats on which they depend. LEARN MORE >
