There are some 10 quintillion (19 zeros!) individual insects alive today and humanity’s future relies on their continued existence. Insects pollinate our crops, roll away dung and provide a non-toxic, natural way to control other pests. Their ubiquitous abundance also makes them a great source of protein and a potential solution to global food security. Our hand-picked team of leading insect experts will answer your toughest questions while sharing a nutritious canape of creepy-crawlies. Featuring Ranger Stacey Thomson, Dr Rocio Ponce-Reyes and Queensland Museum’s Dr Chris Burwell.
