Welcome to the Amazing world of Insects and Arachnids.  The Bug Zoo concept was founded in 1997 by entomologist, Carol Maier, in Victoria BC.  She opened the first entomological endeavor of its kind in downtown Victoria.  Carol was the owner/operator of that Bug Zoo in Victoria for 17 years.  She sold that Victoria entity of the corporation in 2014 under a limited licensing agreement.  The Victoria business is still operating (under different management) but Carol is not involved.

In fact, Carol is pursuing a major expansion of the concept based on a Franchise and a Not-for-profit model.   Stay tuned as developments unfold.  A team of entomologists and business associates are planning a trip to French Guiana.  We will be starting a crowd funding campaign to raise capital for a Bug Zoo Entomological Training and Education Eco-center specifically dedicated to train young entomologists, but also to offer eco-adventures to the general public who want to experience real live “bugs in the jungle“!

If you are interested in signing up for an eco-adventure in the South American jungle to experience all the wonders of entomology and arachnology email Carol at carol@bugzoo.com or sign up for the newsletter.

If you are interested in becoming a Bug Zoo franchisee use the contact form.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.
