Climate Adaptation

CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

It’s a war between invasive species. Stinging Asian needle ants overtaking invasive Argentinian ants in the U.S.
But, what really caught my eye was the last paragraph of the story:

Spicer-Rice works on a citizen-science project called School of Ants where people send in ants collected in their backyards to North Carolina State University for identification. Today, “Asian needle ants are the most common ants found,” she said. “Five years ago, nobody even knew what an Asian needle ant was.”

What an interesting project - people send their backyard ants to a university for study. Kids would LOVE to do that! Check out the project: School of Ants.
