Moths play a vital role in telling us more about the health of our environment. They are widespread found in diverse habitats, and sensitive to ecological changes making them particularly useful as an indicator species of climate change. Monitoring their numbers and ranges can give us vital clues to changes in our own environment, such as the effects of new farming practices, pesticides, air pollution and climate change.    The below link to National Moth Week gives information on how to locate, document, and submit moths as part of a national database that can help us understand the ramifications of climate change
