This story was on the front page of our local newspaper the Standard (2 April). Our family were very excited to read about your project. Especially the picure of the insect that accompanied the story. We found a Katydid the weekend before at Mt Eccles (Budjbin National Park) and could not identify it until we saw the story. My children and I are very interested in insects and were excited to find such a large one with with the hidden surprise of the bright colours under its wings. It sounds like a very exciting project.
