Many people fear insects, resulting in an inability to appreciate and understand the significant contributions of Arthropods on the health of our planet. By maintaining a collection of live animals that are accessible and presented in a non-threatening way, one is able to see them in a new light. This hands-on approach allows people of all ages to explore the wonders of insects in a safe environment.
