Pestival is an exhibit with a mission of “redefining humankind’s relationship with the insect world
and reconnecting urban audiences with the power of nature”. The first Pestival in 2009 featured a popular live insect show and exhibits built in collaboration with international scientists. Popular exhibits included a “Bee Cab” and a 3-dimensional structure that captures the inside of the mound of a Namibian termite (pictured). The Termite mound was based on the work of Dr. Rupert Soar (Video) and was conceived using computer 3-D imaging.
The popular Pestival is scheduled to once again tour the UK in 2018 with new exhibits.
