(forum mods, i don't know if this qualifies as a spiffy, but if someone thinks it does, please feel free to add it to that forum.)

So I am sure I am preaching to the choir when I say anything we can do to help the beneficial insects will do amazing things for our planet. But a lot of people don't know much they can do other than plant for them. Today I found a site that is trying to track and catalog ladybugs, but they need our help. They need people to send them pictures of ladybugs of all kinds all around the country. not just one or two photos, but as many up to date photos as possible. I would like to think that if even 10% of permies sent photos we could make a huge difference and get a good word out for permaculture at the same time! so without further ado: Lost Ladybug project

Only in USA, or ladybugs from all over the world? We have some nice ladybugs too here in the Netherlands

It looks like primarily USA, but there is a few british contributors based on the map.
