About Spineless Wonders

Environmental Education

Spineless Wonders was conceived by David and Fleur Knowles in 1998 as a Perth-based wildlife education service specialising in the largest group of visible living creatures - the Arthropods (mini-beasts). No other animal group has a greater collective impact on world terrestrial environments, other than humans. Mini-beasts (macroinvertebrates) play vital roles in our environment as cleaners, pollinators, recyclers, sources of food, prey and predators.
