Founder of the Entomology Exhibition in Victoria, BC
The Bug Zoo concept is the brainchild of Carol Maier. She founded the concept in 1990 and developed the idea over the course of almost 20 years as the owner/operator of the entomology exhibition in Victoria, BC. The Victoria Bug Zoo was sold in 2014 (under a limited licensing agreement) and continues to be a great success.
Currently, International Bug Zoos Inc. is working toward expansion and growth into the franchise sector as a business. But the vision is also to start a not-for-profit institute in French Guiana that would offer education and training to aspiring entomologists. Through the ladder of engagement, we are hoping to fund students and assist in their entomological education. The training center would also offer eco-adventures to the visitors and give them an up-close look at the magnificent animals in their real-life habitats.
