It's A Bug's World Events

We host our own It's A Bug's World event annually (we usually have a couple events per year) where we provide static and interactive animal displays, provide a Kids Club session and also have breeders and traders in attendance with an array of invertebrates, equipment and interesting gifts. Proceeds from these events go to animal rescue. 

We can also provide our own smaller version of static and interactive displays for private and commercial events.

Kids Club

Our popular Kids Club sessions welcome children aged between 5 and Year 9 (13/14 years). Sessions are fun, interactive, practical and educational. Children meet and learn about different animals from around the world.
