Vanishing Firefly Project
Fireflies… Are they disappearing? And if so, why?
Could the rapid growth of our cities be destroying their
natural habitats? Could our pollution be destroying the
natural resources they need to survive?
Join us as we seek to find the answers…
The objective of the Clemson Vanishing Firefly Project is to promote environmental
sustainability and stewardship through the participation of local communities in
environmental science research. The Clemson Vanishing Firefly Project offers a mobile app that everyone - from elementary students to seniors - can use to measure firefly populations in their communities from neighborhoods, to parks and anywhere in the world they may go!
