National Insect Week at ZSL London Zoo

Visitors are invited to go bug-eyed and explore the world under the magnifying glass as we celebrate National Insect Week

To mark the occasion, spectacular photography exhibition, Insects in Depth, will be making its world debut at ZSL London Zoo's BUGS house. Created by scientific artist Alan Shaw, the unique display features three-dimensional close-ups of some of the weird and wonderful members of the insect group, with visitors kitted out in special 3D glasses to get up close and personal with an array of creepy-crawlies. 

In addition to Insects in Depth, a whole host of incredible invertebrates, including hissing cockroaches, praying mantises and well-disguised stick insects will be making guest appearances at the Megabugs LIVE talks happening throughout the week, and a visit to Butterfly Paradise is a must, to see the Zoo’s beautiful butterflies flitting overhead and spot giant atlas moths suspended in the tropical tunnel.

ZSL London Zoo is celebrating National Insect Week at ZSL London Zoo from Monday 20 to Sunday 26 June 2016.
