RSPB Creating Giant Bug Hotel


12:05am 26th May 2013

The RSPB is calling on families to help preserve some of our endangered insects in Dorset.

They're building a GIANT bug hotel made out of wood, sticks and whatever garden rubbish they can get their hands on.

The special habitat is being made at Nothe Gardens on Thursday 20th May (11am-1pm) and anyone who fancies helping can get stuck in.

The RSPB will be providing the expertise, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council will provide the materials so all you have to do is turn up and have fun. You can even make your own small bug home to take away with you.

Lots of insects are declining at the moment and one of the reasons is the lack of suitable nesting habitats so this giant bug hotel should give them a boost in the wild parts of the Nothe.  

Tom Clarke, Wild about Weymouth and Portland Project Officer said: "Bug hotels are great fun to make, a good use for various bits of garden rubbish and, of course, fantastic at providing a home for lots of different insects. Come along, give us a hand, and pick up some tips about how you can make your garden or balcony better for wildlife!"
Everyone is welcome, no need to book just turn up on the day and enjoy this free event.
