Why should we care?

Without insects many birds, bats, reptiles, amphibians, small mammals and fish would die out as they would have nothing to eat.

87% of all plant species require animal pollination, most of it delivered by insects – that is pretty much all of them except grasses and conifers.
In addition 3 out of 4 of all the crops that we grow require pollination by insects.

Only by working together can we address the causes of insect loss, halt and reverse them and secure a sustainable future for insect life and for ourselves 
Together, we can stop this alarming loss and create an environment that is rich in nature for the benefit of wildlife and people.
