The JASON Argonaut team has arrived in Malaysia! Follow along on JASON’s blog, and on all of JASON’s social media channels for daily updates on their expedition experiences.
Our JASON Student and Teacher Argonauts will join dozens of scientists from across the globe as they convene in the rainforest of Penang to conduct a massive “BioBlitz” survey. They’ll be documenting all of the bugs, plants, animals, and trees that live here in order to better understand the pristine rainforest ecosystem in and around Penang Hill. Their work will help conserve this important resource, and could lead to a UNESCO World Heritage designation.
Join us on this virtual expedition! We will be sharing videos, virtual 360s, pictures, and posts every day, and will be working with the science teams to answer as many of your questions as we can from the rainforest.
