The project itself would probably not interest the general public so I will steer away from that and talk about... well what else is there to talk about on Christmas island other than Crabs!! The Robber Crabs (picture below... the great big huge ones!) cover the island and as soon as evening comes around... out they come! Crawling round the grounds of the pink house.. even climbing onto the pink house!! They have started getting into the rubbish bags we leave outside, even though they are left on a platform 1m from the ground. The start of the rains has them out in even greater numbers and now the infamous Christmas Island Red Crab is making an appearance.
