It’s a bug’s life! Students lend helping hand at BBC’s Bristol Wildlife Garden

Students from SGS College’s Animal Management and Conservation Department were invited to help create luxury bug hotels at the BBC’s Bristol Wildlife Garden, Wednesday 6 May.

The students, who study at SGS College’s Filton Campus, supported more than 30 pupils from Redland High Junior and Bristol Cathedral Choir as well as television naturalist, Nick Baker.

After a few hours of carpentry and twig hunting - 'Beetle Castle' and 'The Bug and Bee' - are now open for business!

Mary Howie, Head of Department for Animal Management and Conservation, comments: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to put their knowledge to good use, have fun, and support the young pupils from Redland High Junior and Bristol Cathedral Choir. Our students were full of enthusiasm a helped create some brilliant new homes for the bugs and insects at Bristol Wildlife Garden.”
