Amata

College Student with an interest in Biodiversity going back to when I was a small child. I am most interested in conservation, with a mythic passion for extremely rare species, specifically those believed possibly extinct. I have a depth of knowledge in regards to Birds and most Insects, especially Beetles and Wasps of which I moderate, though I am increasingly gaining interest in other species, which I can thank NatureMapr for making me notice a lot of species I would have ignored and probably killed as well! I have a presence on iNaturalist https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/people/realamata. Any queries in regard to species of Birds, Beetles and Wasps as well as others are welcomed.
