Inn-sects in the house

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

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.”
