Based upon Wildlife Worlds best-selling Bee & Bug Biome, this giant version is a real focal point and yet still a working insect habit.
Originally designed as a school’s educational tool, the Giant Bee & Bug Biome is also ideal for use in leisure parks, retail environments and interpretation centres. At 1.5m tall it is a real showstopper and talking point.
The Giant Biome is handmade in the UK in FSC certified timber for sustainability, the outside is painted in a pale green blue and the whole piece has real sculptural impact. With a variety of habitat types included in the Giant Biome it should attract a variety of insects including friendly solitary bees. These will nest in the pollinating bee logs and may also be observed entering the clear Perspex nesting tubes in the opening upper inspection area at the top of the Biome.

Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
There are more than 40,000 invertebrate species in the UK, and many of these are under threat as never before.
Invertebrates are vitally important to a healthy planet – humans and other life forms could not survive without them. The food we eat, the fish we catch, the birds we see, the flowers we smell and the hum of life we hear, simply would not exist without bugs. Invertebrates underpin life on earth and without them the world’s ecosystems would collapse.
Invertebrates are facing an extinction crisis
Today, thousands of invertebrate species are declining and many are heading towards extinction. Worldwide 150,000 species could be gone by 2050 if we do nothing.
Each invertebrate species plays a unique and important role in the web of life, but once lost, they cannot be replaced. Many invertebrates have incredible life stories yet to be told, and we literally don’t know what we are on the brink of losing.
Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates.
We are working hard to achieve this through:
- Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
- Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
- Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
- Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
- Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
