The theme day activity of "Searching for Insects in Late Autumn" enjoys great success


On October 26, a team of 40 science fans paid a visit to the Daning Tulip Park, where they carried out the "Searching for Insects in Late Autumn", a theme day activity organized by the SNHM,. The activity fell into three parts: learning about insects, searching for insects and observing insects. In the session of learning about insects, Tang Liang, associate professor at the Shanghai Normal University, used a pre-prepared booklet to introduce many common native outdoor insects and the way to identify them. When searching for insects, the team members followed the guidance of experts and tutors, and observed multiple types of insects in the richly vegetated Daning Tulip Park. In the last session, under the guidance of experts, the team members used simple portable observation boxes to take a close look at the vocal parts of insects.
