About this Event

Special online screening for the Australian launch of the International Year of Caves and Karst 2021, followed by live Q&A with the director.

Australian cave crickets have an extensive family tree with eight genera within the Australian Rhaphidophoridae family (pronounced Rap-hid-o-phor-idea). This ancient family originated before the break-up of the old super-continent of Gondwana.

Australian cave crickets are wingless insects and can be found in limestone, larva and granite caves in both moist and dry areas. They can often be seen in the entrance areas to caves. Be sure to ask your guide about them if you are on a tour at one of Australia’s amazing public show cave sites. More info on cave crickets: https://bit.ly/3pqAuUZ
