The Bug Chicks Sofa Safari

The Bug Chicks Sofa Safari

You don’t have to visit the Amazon or Borneo to see cool animals – there is an amazing world to discover here in the United States! We will be traveling across the country to film bizarre and familiar arthropods (arthropods = animals with an exoskeleton). Using a vintage sofa as our setpiece in wild ecosystems, we will inspire you to “get off the couch” and explore America's backyard wilderness. Sign in to join mission

We're partnering with Project Noah to make our adventure truly interactive. We want you to upload pictures of insects and other arthropods found along the route or in your own backyards. We'll live-blog and tweet related behind-the-scenes clips, how-to videos, and additional content through Project Noah and NPR’s Science Friday during the five week expedition. We're getting ready to hit the road and we hope you're getting ready to show us your bugs!
