11 December 2018 - 30 June 2019

Unfortunately, these small creatures are not doing very well at the moment. The special exhibition «Insects - essential to life!» in the Zoological Museum of the University of Zurich highlights the present insect decline and offers simple solutions to counteract the problem.
