Klein-Edwards Professional Services
This is where KEPS comes in. We offer education, teaching and training at reasonable fees as well as giving back to communities to educate the public with free programs, docent training at some of our preserves to help raise the volunteers (docents)  awareness of the beauty and diversity of their respective preserves.
We have made a major shift on who we are. Klein-Edwards Professional Services is now focused on invertebrates with an emphasis on insects. Michael Klein, the founder has over 53 years living and loving his passion of butterflies of which almost 20 years is as a professional. Around 2000 he became fascinated with invertebrate pollinators.

He is considered an ecological Entomologist, focusing on educating and teaching  the 'WHY' of a species'. With his nearly 20 years working in the field a paid Field Biologist he discovered a significant lack of understanding and identification in the Field Biology Industry.
We still conduct field work but it is our desire and goal to teach and train field personnel what we know. Our training programs would include assistance in field identification, habitat search requirements in the field, in-house training, videos, species specific books or booklets and guidelines or protocols on how to search for particular species.   We can be hired as project managers from the invertebrate perspective or train your project managers to ensure accurate documentation of invertebrates.
Within the Government, professional and public arenas most agree that without insects and plants humans will NEVER survive. But they agree to a limit because there is a bias in their knowledge. For example most see just a tiny tiny tiny sliver of the benefit flies provide to humans. Almost everyone I have shared this one statistic immediately alters their paradigm: within the U.S. and Canada there are well over 17,000 species of flies of which at least 70% primary's responsibility is to pollinate.

The science area (schools and museums) have a very good understanding of this and I applaud them because without them much of our research goes undiscovered. But there is a huge part of society that does not look at or find the study of insects relevant. Also the cost of schools is becoming almost unaffordable.
Invertebrates are probably the largest biomass on this planet. Yet something this large basically goes unnoticed or ignored with the smallest percentage of those harm humans, crops, lands or forests. Even then the primary fix is to spray toxic chemicals which have far reaching negative impacts to humans then looking for natural fixes.

Jonas Salk said, "
if all the insects on Earth disappeared, within 50 years all life on earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the Earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish."
Man, to a large degree still believes they can or will survive without them. Now is the time understand everything, INCLUDING INSECTS, must live in harmony. If we ignore this we die.
