Introducing a new citizen science project from @Berkeley_Evolab: Eight-Eyed Expedition! You can help by collecting native spiders, and the lab will sequence their genomes in order to identify conservation needs & help manage California biodiversity.
They’re using @inaturalist and a citizen science initiative to distribute the collecting effort and engage the public in learning more about local biodiversity. More info can be found on their website here: https://nature.berkeley.edu/eight-eyed-expedition/
Happy spidey collecting!
