Congrats to Nick and Louise and a request

Nick and Louise are part of a celebratory event this week for the 35th Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards, honoring programming distributed during the calendar year 2013. Awards will be presented on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014 at a ceremony at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located in the Time Warner Center in New York City. Emmy Awards will be presented in 43 categories, including the first-ever categories reserved for news and documentary programming in Spanish.

The documentary is part of a Smithsonian Channel series and includes footage of and by Nick and Louise. You can see the video on the STEM page of

Hope you two are walking on air. And when you come back down, could you post an entry on the blog about the story behind the census research at CAVE? Some of us need a review. Was it visitors’ questions that made Nick abandon research on flight and emergence patterns in order to find out how many bats were in the colony? How and when did the idea about linking the thermal camera and designing a counting algorithm come to you? What was the most frustrating part? The most rewarding part or epiphany?

Walter suggested this story could be helpful for any interpreters telling the story of how many bats are in the cave. If it’s a pain to write it, make us a video on your iphone and post it. We know you’re photogenic. : )

Thanks and congrats again!
