Take Action for Insects
We are witnessing the largest extinction event on Earth since the dinosaurs
Take Action for Insects and tackle the crisis
Insects are dying out up to 8 times faster than larger animals and 41% of insect species face extinction. This is a grave cause for concern - it impacts us all as well as all wildlife. Insects pollinate three quarters of our food crops, as well as being the main food source for many birds, small mammals and fish. Loss of their habitat and overuse of pesticides are two of the major causes of this looming catastrophe.
However, it’s not too late to act.
Insect populations can recover, and we know what needs to be done to save them. By working together we can change the future of insects, starting right now, you can help by taking our pledge to take two simple actions in your home or outside space that will make a difference.
