We are an international organization dedicated to research, conservation and public awareness of dragonflies and damselflies (collectively called Odonata).
Dragonflies and damselflies are predators as aquatic larvae and as winged adults. In this way, they connect aquatic and terrestrial habitats from deserts to tropical rain forests. Their intimate connection to water makes odonates useful bioindicators of ecological health of their habitats and proxies for general biodiversity.
We invite all dragonfly enthusiasts, nature lovers, citizen scientists, students, academics and professionals to join us as members of our international family!
