Twenty four sites are being set up across Okinawa, including forest and open sites. Each site will have 3 SLAM traps to collect arthropods, and eventually each will also have a weather station for recording environmental parameters, an acoustic monitoring device to record the soundscape, and a motion-triggered camera trap.

Takuma Yoshida, our taxonomist and sorting technician, is leading a team of sorters to sort the insect specimens collected from the OKEON project. The sorters come from a variety of backgrounds, such as fields ranging from construction to photography.
