OKEON project set up all 24 sites!


On March 31, 2016, the OKEON team set up the final site for insect collection in Higashi Village, located on the northeastern part of Okinawa. There are now 24 sites with a total of 72 traps (3 traps per site) across Okinawa.

Dr. Masashi Yoshimura, a staff scientist at our lab and the coordinator of the OKEON project, was interviewed by NHK to document the completion of site setup.
