Exclusive: Saving the Giant Fregate Tenebrionid Beetle at London Zoo

Geoff Moore visits ZSL London Zoo for Discover Animals to talk to Paul Pearce-Kelly, Curator of Invertebrates, about what is being done to help save the Giant Fregate Tenebrionid Beetle. Work includes the creation of a new exhibit at the attraction to allow members of the public to view and learn more about these rare creatures.

In another Discover Animals exclusive, Geoff will shortly be visiting Fregate Island in the Seychelles itself, the only place on earth where the beetles can be found in the wild, so look out for his report in the coming weeks.
