Why a bug zoo?
We get that question a lot. The simple answer is because bugs are awesome!
The Victoria Bug Zoo is an educational facility focused on the following goals.
- Display some of the incredible diversity of invertebrates from around the world, many of which are unknown to the average person
- Combat the vast amount of misinformation and negative stereotypes about ‘bugs’ with facts and enthusiasm
- Assist visitors in overcoming phobias in a safe, controlled environment
- Provide a unique, hands-on experience for all ages with some of the most underappreciated animals
- Promote the appreciation and conservation of all living things, no matter how different from us they are
- Create a safe space for the younger crowd to develop and foster a life long passion for insects
