The Final Days
Days 6 and 7
I can’t believe we are more than halfway through this visit. It’s been so eye-opening, educational and collaborative.
Another day of learning, sharing and inspiration.
Today we had the chance to explore some new species and share some edible cricket snacks with our new friends.
More work today with the colony and exploring the species. Truly incredible to be with such fascinating people and insects.
Today we had the amazing opportunity to asses the rearing protocols in the production facility. Truly great work growing the colony.
I am back in Madagascar, and so happy to be here. Since my last visit here about 3 months ago, there have been so many insect samples collected. We are now beginning to catalogue all of the edible insects in Madagascar. This has never been done before, and it is fascinating to see the diversity of insects that are eaten here. Amazingly, and unfortunately, crickets are not traditionally eaten here which is crazy because of how they are eaten all over Africa and Asia. Read more about the project.
