Alan Henderson has had a fascination for invertebrates his entire life. He has successfully combined this with his other passion, macro photography, and his images have been published in books and other media throughout the world. Alan completed a BAppSc, Scientific Photography at RMIT University before beginning his zoo-keeping career in Ballarat. He created the Australian Nature Education Centre in 1995 and received the Young Australian of the Year Regional Development Award for the Centre. He was lured to Melbourne Museum and began the Live Exhibits Unit, which ultimately led to the development of the extremely popular ‘Bugs Alive!’ exhibition, and authored the award-winning book Bugs Alive – A Guide to Keeping Australian Invertebrates. He coordinated the Unit for 11 years before leaving to operate Minibeast Wildlife full-time. His expertise in working with live invertebrates have taken him around the world, including the jungles of Costa Rica. Alan now operates Minibeast Wildlife from the tropical paradise of Kuranda, north Queensland, one of the most biologically diverse regions of Australia, particularly with regard to invertebrates.
