Fellow entomologists, I am in need of your expertise with paperwork for permits. In a nutshell, I'm a U.S. federal employee and I'm assisting with a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) outreach booth at the upcoming ESA meeting in Vancouver, Canada. I'd like to bring along (handy carry) a small selection (10 or less) of pinned grasshopper specimens for "show and tell," but I was recently told that I'll need permits to do this from both the U.S. and Canada.
Rather than do a deep web dive on trying to figure out what I need to make this happen, I thought it'd be faster to ask people here since I know many of you probably did this sort of thing frequently.
I welcome any advice you may have!
