Our first summer of My Wild City has seen people flock in their hundreds to explore local parks and discover the incredible abundance of weird and wonderful wildlife that calls Manchester home. Did you know that woodlice breathe through their knees? Or that caterpillars have 12 eyes? The miniature world of minibeasts is a place full of fascination with over 20,000 different species of insect living in Great Britain alone.
Our monthly ‘Wild at The Whitworth’ events have gone down a storm this summer with over 350 of you getting involved and uncovering the wildlife Manchester has to offer. From beautiful light green emerald moths to ginormous slimy slugs and violet ground beetles which resemble shimmering jewels.
