Notes from the field can be wonderfully informative about the invertebrates that have gathered us all here to the ATS message boards. Unfortunately, people who are passionate about the conservation of these amazing animals are not alone in their ability to view the information on this website.

Please keep this in mind when posting locality data from the field. Sadly, an unscrupulous individual with this information in hand can easily wipe out an entire population. Please feel free to share the general locations, but try to keep it vague enough that your exact field location cannot be determined.

We are lucky enough to be a gathering place for researchers who are in the process of studying range and density of some of these animals. Should one of these people contact you, by ALL means share your knowledge with them. Please contact any of the Board or Moderators if you have questions about this.

If I may add.....

Landmarks aren't only made up of buildings and towers.....they can also be boulder fields, trees, and just about anything you can think of.

Make sure when posting field pics, that there is nothing too obvious being shown.

People can and will find that area if they recognize it, and can certainly decimate an entire population from over collecting.
