During this webinar, participants will learn more about the environmental parameters that help us predict when mosquitoes will be active. GLOBE teachers and students from around the world will share their predictions, and explain their reasons for making the predictions. Participants will also learn how to make larval traps to capture mosquito larvae safely and will review the prevention precautions to take to ensure safety during active mosquito season.

The GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign
The goal of GLOBE Mission Mosquito is to create an organized citizen science community, primarily through formal education with targeted outreach to informal education, that will conduct and report local observations using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper App. Using the mobile app, citizen scientists identify potential breeding sites for mosquitoes, sample and count mosquito larvae, and with optional equipment, examine and photograph a specimen to identify its genus.
