    The Future is Insects

    Recorded live at World Science Festival Brisbane 2023


    There are some 10 quintillion (19 zeros!) individual insects alive today and humanity’s future relies on their continued existence.

Their ubiquitous abundance also makes them a great source of protein and a potential solution to global food security. Our hand-picked team of leading insect experts will answer your toughest questions while sharing a nutritious canape of creepy-crawlies. Featuring Ranger Stacey Thomson, Dr Rocio Ponce-Reyes and Queensland Museum's Dr Chris Burwell.
