Camel Cricket Census
|Goal||Help scientists understand the camel crickets in your house!|
|Task||Share observations of camel crickets in your home!|
|Where||Global, anywhere on the planet|
The Your Wild Life team needs citizen scientists to share observations and photos of camel crickets in your home!
To date, their network of keen citizen observers has reported a preponderance of camel crickets in their basements, garages and garden sheds. Some interesting patterns in cricket distribution have emerged, and the researchers have learned that a Japanese camel cricket is way more common in the US than previously thought.
