Title: Help Us Combat the World’s Most Dangerous Animal with an App!

Guest Speaker: Dorian Janney, GLOBE Mission Mosquito Campaign Coordinator and Lead for NASA Satellite Collaborations, GFSC/NASA/ADNET

Date: Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Time: 10am CT / 9am MT

Description: Mosquitoes are the world’s most dangerous animal, and there is something we can all do to reduce the threat of mosquito-transmitted disease in our communities. Join us to find out why mosquitoes are so dangerous and to learn how NASA Earth-observing satellite data is being used in an effort to predict, monitor, and respond to vector-borne disease around the world.

In this presentation, participants will be introduced to a Citizen Science effort and the newest GLOBE field measurement campaign, GLOBE Mission Mosquito! This program connects with citizen scientists of all ages to monitor changes in the frequency, range, and distribution of potential disease vector mosquitoes by reporting observations using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper app. Participants are encouraged to download the free app here https://observer.globe.gov/ before the webinar.
