10/22/2017 Update by Candace Miller during the Penang Hill BioBlitz 2017:
Teacher Argonaut Candace Miller is from Brooklyn, New York. She shared her journal entry from the first week of the Penang Hill BioBlitz in which she recounts her experiences birding, stargazing, surveying ants, and searching for rainforest mammals at night.
*Close your eyes*
Now imagine laying comfortably on a large wooden bench with your new Argonaut friends in the middle of the Penang Hill rainforest. The stars are beginning to peek out, and Jude hands you a gadget that allows you to explore the stars to the buzzing of life in the jungle. Time stands still as you realize just how small you are in this vast world.
*Now open your eyes*
