BugGuide.net is an online community of naturalist who enjoy learning and sharing observations of insects, spiders, and others related organisms. They enjoy the chance to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that they share for the complex lives of these creatures. Their mission is to create a knowledge-base to help each other and the online community. The community collects photos of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research purposes and summarizes their findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species. The site also helps expand on the natural histories of their subjects. They capture never-before-seen behaviors and they have photos of species that you won’t find anywhere else on the web.
