What insect is that?
Have you ever looked at an insect and wondered what it was? Two upcoming events on Kangaroo Island could help provide some answers.

Natural Resources Kangaroo Island Wildlife Program Manager Robyn Molsher said two family fun insect events would be held October and December to help catch, identify and learn about the Island’s insects.
“Insects play an extremely important role in the web of life as they are nature’s pollinators, sweepers of leaf litter, garbage collectors, soil conditioners and producers of natural fertiliser.
“Without insects such as bees, we would not have the crops and food that we depend on.”
Both events will include a free sausage sizzle.
