Bugs are amazing! You might think of them as small, hairy and a bit scary, but they can do things that can’t be done by anyone or anything else. They’re a vital part of our ecosystems; they help our country maintain biosecurity; and they keep your own backyard in good environmental health. They have some pretty special talents, and BUGS! will introduce you to them all.
The New Zealand Children’s Holocaust Memorial is a collection of 1.5 million buttons, gathered from all over the world. Each one represents a child who perished during the holocaust. It was established to honour and give a voice to the children, and serve as a reminder to stand up to prejudice, discrimination and apathy.
