New Visitors and Training

After a very quiet week, today firstly Lee Dyer came for weekend. He is the Lead Investigator for the Caterpillar Project (Caterpillars.org) which is all over North and South America, funded  by The National Science Foundation. He was kind enough to give me some tips  and advice,  As  helping  with  the Caterpillar Project is one of my main duties here. Which is becoming easier as there is now currently  only 50 Caterpillars to feed as others have, died or mostly  become Chrysalis or  are affected the Parasitiods(Parasites). So now it’s a case of checking and recording  what happens and collecting the hatched adults for specimens.

Also  Guinevere  Jones another Wyominite  has come for 2 months to do research for her PhD with the help of her Boyfriend  David who is also a PhD  Student
