Interpretiing Edible Insects

Interpreting Edible Insects
International importance, edible insects, insect farming
and insect meals.

If It Bugs You - Eat It!

In many countries world-wide, insects make up about 80% of their protein needs and are a stable part of their diets. Even the UN has noted the importance of edible insects to world health and dietary needs. Besides insects we will look at other "non-traditional" foods, such as spiders, snails, crayfish and other food sources.

This course, and its companion Edible Insects Resource Manual, is designed to help you create and present interpretive programs and experiences for visitors to parks, historic sites, heritage areas, museums and zoos on the world-wide importance of edible insects - and offer an "insect tasting experience".

You can start this course at any time and complete the course at your own pace. We can chat anytime via e-mail, phone or skype.
