Small but mighty field season

Jay, Robin, and I just wrapped up a two-week field season that was SO productive! We made many discoveries and even managed to collect more data than we planned. We are so grateful that were able to visit the original site of the purring cricket discovery after two years of COVID lockdown. In the words of Jay, “an extra big mahalo to the residents and caretakers at Kalaupapa, Molokai who value our science enough to share their very special home with us.” We especially loved spending time with Sister Barbara Jean, Sister Alicia, Glauco, Tim, Kristin, and all the new friends who stopped by to chat with us. I’d also like to thank my friends on Hilo for providing us with the most random list of research supplies (rakes, Tupperware, a microscope, and more). Helen Sofaer and Luke Caldwell you are lifesavers! (Yes I had 3 hair styles in 2 weeks – might be a new record)
