Yebo 2014

Wednesday 14 May to Sunday 18 May 2014

9 - 4 pm Weekdays
10 - 4 pm Weekend

Yebo Gogga Yebo amaBlomo is an annual exhibition where the public and school learners can see and learn about fascinating bugs, plants and animals. Every year the theme of the exhibition changes to reveal interesting information about the amazing creatures that inhabit this planet, especially those in South Africa. 

The theme for Yebo Gogga Yebo amaBlomo 2014 is 'Rainbow World

We take a look at the importance of colour. It goes beyond the sinking feeling of a blue light growing in the rear view mirror or how much better you look in purple. Colour is about communication-from recognising your own kind and food or resources, to warnings and deception.

It is energy for the base of the food chain, it is sex in the garden, it can protect, repel or attract. It is rich in information and lights up our lives. What do other species see? Are we missing out?
