With Stéphane Le Tirant, researcher and curator of the scientific collection at the Insectarium

Drawing on his thousands of international contacts, Stéphane collaborates with insect experts and enthusiasts around the world to add to the Insectarium’s scientific collection and to discover new species. And he does it all without having to organize complex and costly collection missions to other lands. How does he discover new species? What surprises has he encountered along the way? Take this opportunity to meet a researcher and exceptional storyteller and get a close-up look at his latest finds. In French only.
