Project Noah publishes weekly wildlife facts across social media! Each week, our popular Facebook Page shares high-quality educational content on nature and wildlife. Here is a weekly wildlife post about a Geometer Moth from India.

Geometer Moth

This geometrid moth (Macrohastina gemmifera) dazzles with an intricate mix of colors and patterns. There are only three species in the genus Macrohastina (Subfamily: Larentiinae; Tribe: Asthenini), all found in Asia. This moth was spotted by Dr. Namgyal T. Sherpa in a remote part of the state of Sikkim, India. Sikkim is considered an ecological hotspot of the lower Himalayas; its forested regions are home to a diverse fauna and flora across a range of altitudes and climates. Sikkim has a rich diversity of arthropods, with many still to be discovered!

The Project Noah Story

Project Noah is an award-winning software platform designed to help people connect with the natural world and learn about wildlife. Launched out of NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program in early 2010, the project began as an experiment to mobilize citizen scientists and build a digital butterfly net for the 21st century. The original Project Noah platform was founded by Yasser Ansari, Martin Ceperley, Peter Horvath, and Bruno Kruse with support from New York University and the Joan Ganz Conney Center.

Project Noah enables amateurs and professionals alike to create and share multimedia nature journals. Our community is harnessing the power of new mobile technologies to collect important ecological data and help preserve global biodiversity.

The Project Noah community includes 350,000+ nature journals, 825,000+ wildlife spottings and 1.5 million+ geotagged wildlife photographs.
