ESA Activities in Support of the March for Science
Art by ESA member Carly M. Tribull.
The Entomological Society of America (ESA) has endorsed the March for Science, which was held on April 22. The stated goals and non-partisan principles of the March for Science align closely with the strategic principles of ESA, in particular ESA's commitment to ensuring that all of its members can participate fully in the organization and its conviction that entomologists must collaborate with government and the public to maximize the positive benefits insect science offers to the world.
ESA members participated in marches taking place around the world. We will be adding links below to videos and photos from March for Science events as we receive them, as well as other resources of interest.
