Big Bug Bonanza 2019

Big Bug Bonanza 2019

Fota Wildlife Park’s Big Bug Bonanza will be held from 10 to 11 of August 2019. Throughout the weekend, the education team will be raising awareness about the diversity of insects and creepie crawlies that exist on earth, and visitors will have an opportunity to view a selection of fascinating creatures that exist in the bug world. The aim of the event is to:
• To raise awareness of the importance of invertebrate life in ecosystems
• To elicit positive attitudes to invertebrates by the general public
• To encourage positive behaviours towards invertebrates.
The event is organised in conjunction with BIAZA’s Terrestrial Invertebrate Working Group and a host of zoological collection in both Ireland and the UK will be joining forces in promoting the role played by these creatures in sustaining ecosystems!
