The GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign
The goal of GLOBE Mission Mosquito is to create an organized citizen science community that will conduct and report local observations using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper App. Using the mobile app, citizen scientists of all ages (including K-12 students) will identify potential breeding sites for mosquitoes, sample and count mosquito larvae, and (with optional equipment), examine and photograph a specimen to identify its genus.
