The world’s insect populations are quietly disappearing,
but you can help them.
"Knowing where and why certain species are struggling is as important as trying to fix it. Insects are in trouble, but each bug faces its own battle. Support for our arthropod friends will need to be carefully targeted."
What we really need is more reliable data from more places.
BUT IT'S COMPLICATED
THIS IS WHERE WE COME IN
We believe that the key to understanding insect populations, is to monitor their behaviour in real time, in more places across the globe.
That's why we're creating a range of
open-source smart insect monitors that connect to an online platform, providing a reliable research tool for scientists and amateur enthusiasts alike.
THE SPAIA* SMART INSECT MONITOR RANGE
HOW IT WORKS
Low-cost internet-enabled devices you can make at home that monitor insects and the micro-climates in which they are found. Data from these devices is logged to a globally accessible database.
