Inn-sects in the house
PINT-SIZED guests are checking in to the City of Subiaco’s first insect hotel at Mabel Talbot Reserve.
The multifunctional public art sculpture was designed by University of WA architecture, landscape and visual arts student Tim Delany to provide a safe and secure habitat for local fauna.
The insect hotel was made with recycled timber from the City’s tree prunings and metal from bulk rubbish collections throughout the year.
Subiaco Mayor Heather Henderson said the council had a strong commitment to environmental conservation.
“We are proud to be collaborating with young people and local educational institutions to develop innovative ways to protect and enhance our environment.”
