THE LOCAL HABITAT

There are plenty of species and creatures living in our surroundings that we could get to know better. This is why Floris Schoonderbeek came up with The Local Habitat, a glass research dome in which you create your own temporary ecosystem. The glass shape has a slight magnifying effect and allows for great observation, especially when filled with water. Floris: “Bring creatures to your Local Habitat, give them a temporary home, observe and learn, and set them free after getting to know them better. Because the more you know, the more you care.”

MAGNIFYING EFFECT

The three bubbles on the side of the glass allow for better observation. The shape magnifies your view and allows you to observe creatures from all different angles. This effect works best with the observation of water animals, when the Local Habitat is filled with water.
 

RESPONSIBLE OBSERVATION

The Local Habitat is provided with a booklet that gives you all information on the different creatures you can find and how to responsibly observe them. It’s important to always take the needs of your catch into account. Never leave the Local Habitat in direct sunlight, and make sure to provide food, water and enough oxygen. And most importantly: always release your catch back into nature.
 

OBSERVE CREATURES NEARBY

A big goal of the Local Habitat is to teach you more about the creatures living around you. Together with your Local Habitat you will receive a booklet containing information about the creatures and species living in your surroundings. This way you can really learn all about your temporary ecosystem. Do always make sure to take the needs of your catch into account.

CREATE YOUR OWN TERRARIUM

The Local Habitat is the ideal starting point to create your own terrarium. With some research into what plants to use, you can fill the open bowl however you like.

USE IT AS A VASE

The Local Habitat is great to observe creatures in. But when you are finished with observing the life around you, it doubles as a vase! Fill it with freshly cut flowers or plant some succulents inside.
