At least 38 dragonfly working groups exist in The Netherlands, ranging from working groups studying dragonflies only, to working groups studying other insect groups as well. Group excursions, inventories of nature areas, identification courses and publication of regional distribution atlases are among the many activities organised by working groups. Studying dragonflies together is very stimulating and has several advantages. By working together, mapping the dragonflies of a whole region becomes possible in an effective way. The amount of work can be divided and members can replace each other during vacations. During the process, less experienced dragonfly enthusiasts learn quickly from more experienced recorders. Furthermore, working groups have a more formal position, e.g. when giving advices to nature managers. But the main reason for many people to join a dragonfly working group might well be that watching dragonflies together is just much more fun!
