Bugs Aplenty 2021
They may be small, and we may not always notice them, but insects are the dominant form of animal life on this planet! Close to a million species of insects have been described to date and those insects are the linchpins of the living world, carrying out many of the functions that make life possible. However, studies have shown that insect populations are in a steep decline. From habitat loss and degradation, to pollution, pesticides, climate change, and disease – these essential creatures are in jeopardy.
