National Insect Week returns in 2020
Saturday, June 16, 2018 - 13:00 to 15:00
The butterfly house offers the chance for visitors to get up close and personal with a vast array of native and tropical species of butterfly – a great attraction for the kids.
Golders Hill Park is an accessible park. It has 8 disabled parking bays, a dedicated disabled toilet located behind Golders Hill Park café, a second accessible toilet near the Zoo, and gently sloping tarmac paths throughout.
Female water snipe flies Atherix ibis clasp each other and cluster in big round aggregations on the end of branches overhanging rivers – males entering the swarms are mated repeatedly until they die. The females then lay their eggs in to the water – and all die still in their tight aggregations.
