Wait… Fireflies EXIST in Utah?!

I’m absolutely SHOOK!


I seriously DO NOT believe that Fireflies exist to live in Utah. I’ve grown up here for most of my life and have never, not even once, seen an actual living Firefly in Utah. I’ve been to countless of other places across the country and have seen them, but never here in my home state.

According to the Natural¬†History Museum of Utah, they DO exist in the Beehive State! They’ve been partnering with scientists at BYU to track their populations and also using the help of citizen scientists.

You can even view a map of current Firefly sightings right in your own city!

I’m still having a really hard time believing all of this, but you can help me change that by submitting your Firefly sightings by clicking this link and sending in your submission form!
