Fireflyers International Network (FIN)

The Fireflyers International Network, formed during the 2017 International Symposium in Taipei, is an international group of firefly scientists and enthusiasts, with over 200 members, including ecologists, chemists, geneticists, artists, and naturalists, brought together by a shared sense of wonder and delight in these bioluminescence beetles.

FIN’s mission is to learn more about their unique biology, and work together to protect the threatened fireflies habitat.

FIN is part of the IUCN Firefly Specialist Group together with the Xerces Society and the Malaysian Nature Society.
