Dragonfly Mercury Project

The Dragonfly Mercury Project engages citizen scientists in national parks across the US in the collection of dragonfly larvae for mercury analysis. The data we collect are used in scientific research undertaken by the University of Maine, the US Geological Survey, and other partners.
