Insect-lover on his amazing collection


After giving up his job as a notary, insect-lover Georges Brossard spent decades travelling with his wife to more than 100 different countries collecting insects.

When he returned to his native Montreal he donated his collection of nearly 250,000 specimens to the City of Montreal.

Now Montreal has opened an Insectarium so that the public can come and see Brossard's amazing collection.

He explained to Brandy Yanchyk why he finds insects so fascinating.
