We are committed to protecting our island and all of our wonderful community from the impacts of invasive species as much as we can, and right now, it looks like that includes the viral kind!
In aligning with current recommendations, we are taking these steps to limit social interaction and prevent the spread of Covid19:
- Our office in Hilo will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 18.*If you have questions or want to report something weird, don’t hesitate! Email us at email@example.com, FB message, or call 933-3340 – we will be checking and responding to all messages (with maybe a slight delay).
- If you have samples of ants for identification, please mail them (frozen!) to 23 E. Kawili Street and we will try to get your to you results within a week of receipt.
- We will not be scheduling any new community LFA trainings or public speaking engagements in the near future. If you want to hold a virtual meeting for your community of any age and ask folks to tune in, we can make that happen. Just reach out and we’ll work with you to set up some “distance education” to keep us all learning through this time.
Please take care and follow all recommendations for social distancing and good hygiene. We look forward to seeing all of you very soon, happy, healthy, and ready to battle some invasive species when this crisis has passed. Much aloha from the BIISCuits!
