The Yebo Gogga Yebo amaBlomo exhibition is a unique annual Johannesburg event that brings animals and plants together under one roof complete with tailor-made talks from experts, making it a fun and educational experience for kids and nature lovers of all ages. Every year the theme of the exhibition changes to reveal interesting information about the inhabitants of our planet. This year the theme is Beat the Heat and speaks to the topic of climate change.  Beat the Heat explores how plants and animals cope with heat, and how climate change is impacting science and society. Are you doing your bit to ensure we thrive?

Since its launch Yebo Gogga has proved to be a success with over 8 000 visitors and 26 schools flocking to the show annually. The interactive exhibition provides an educational and social outreach service to the Gauteng community by addressing shortfalls in teaching life sciences at schools by means of the provision of live animals and plants which form an interactive framework round a theme and thus an educational situation for learners that is not encountered in the classroom.
