Bug Blitz is a unique and innovative program designed to educate students on biodiversity.
Initiated by the Hugh D.T. Williamson Foundation, under the auspices of the Museum Victoria, Bug Blitz involves a fun, arts-based approach, enhancing students’ engagement with the environment, and helping them understand the profound impact even the slightest of change can have on the eco-system, especially in their local areas. Local schools throughout Victoria participate, becoming active shapers of the program.
Bug Blitz’s patron is the world-renowned Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson. Bug Blitz involves experts in environmental sciences, film, multimedia and puppetry to promote creative ways of learning.
Principal partners in the inaugural Narmbool Bug Blitz were Sovereign Hill, The Hugh D.T. Williamson Foundation and the Victorian Schools Innovation Commission (VSIC), Museum Victoria, University of Ballarat, Waterwatch, the Ballarat Environmental Network and Martin Scuffins.
