Moth Festival

Did you know that there are approximately 160,000 species of moth? Also, did you know most of the species of moth are nocturnal

We've all come across these creatures in our surroundings and inside our own homes from time to time. Sometimes, even as unwelcome guests. But how much do we actually know about them?





In order to address this issue, KEDB (Karnataka Eco-Tourism Development Board) along with MyEcoTrip is organizing a 5-hour event on 16th July 2019 from 5:00 PM - 10:30 PM. It will be conducted at the Institute of Wood Science and Technology, Bangalore. The entry fee is Rs. 100 per person.






We are bringing in moth experts, photographers who will be talking about their experience in the field. Also, we'll be showcasing a documentary to build awareness among the general public about moths and their habitat.
