Global Invert Celebration Calendar

This is an attempt to catalog, in one place, all the various yearly invertebrate-themed social media events and celebrations. Some are just simply fun excuses to post pictures of one’s favorite insect or invertebrate, but often they’re created by specialists in their respective fields, and become a way to raise awareness or bond together over a shared obsession. 

Many of these dates are ad-hoc, and so may or may not be very well-established. While many of these are from Twitter, it’s by no means the only platform. But I want to know them all! 

Any you know about that I should add? Please share dates and links in the comments!
