Emanuele Biggi | Saturday
Macro maestro shares his love of creepy-crawlies…
Emanuele Biggi, aka spiderman, nature and conservation photographer, TV presenter, frog and insect nerd. Emanuele will lead us into a eight-legged world, which is way more vast and rich than one could think. A often underrated world of tiny but skillful hunters, parents, divers and engineers.
Spiders live all over the world, except perhaps on the poles. They are woven into every aspect of our life on this planet. Many people often kill spiders as vermin and others keep them as pets. The common thread in Emanuelle Biggi’s story is that we must understand that spiders are a precious ally in our own existence..
The survival of the human species on Earth is subjected to the survival of the other forms of life, not the contrary. It’s all about biodiversity. Our world is a playground for life and death, where the fulcrum is the health of every ecosystem. By losing a “piece” of nature, we lose part of us, including a sense of beauty and culture.
