Insect Inventorium

In entomology – the scientific study of insects – about 1 million species have been found and described, but an estimated 9 million more remain undiscovered. What kinds of insects live in and around Bukit Gombak? What can we find when we bend down, take the time to look, follow them and imagine their lives?

In this larger-than-life meets tinier-than-human display, Insect Inventorium invites you to dive into a world of insects, both real and speculative. Come view a collection of insects spotted, observed, documented and imagined by the community. Join in our activities for the public, or even make and contribute your very own insect to the collection.

Insect Inventorium is created by Isabelle Desjeux, Fellow, Foo Maosheng, Hoo Kuan Cien, James Khoo and Faye Lim with the residents of Bukit Gombak. Supported by the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum and National Parks Board.
