Full name:
Chloe and Trevor Van Loon

Chloe and Trevor Van Loon here, just two aspiring naturalists, exploring and learning our way through the incredible diversity of insects that we come across.

Starting in 2020 we became nomads and have been traveling around British Columbia and California wherever nature is thriving.

We are always interested to contribute to citizen/community science projects as well as share our photography. So if a photo piques your interest, or you think we could help with a project (i.e. documenting/surveying, collecting data, or specimens) please reach out!

Thank you to everyone who identifies our observations! We learn a great deal from all the incredible experts that take the time to help us put a name to what we've observed! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
