Rebugging the Planet: The Remarkable Things that Insects (and Other Invertebrates) Do – And Why We Need to Love Them More
by Vicki Hird Author and Gillian Burke Foreword
We are headed toward “insectageddon” with a rate of insect extinction eight times faster than that of mammals or birds. Insects and invertebrates are the cornerstone of our global ecosystem; they pollinate plants, feed birds, support and defend our food crops, and clean our water systems, they are also beautiful, inventive, and economically invaluable. Learn how to rewild parks, schools, sidewalks, roadsides, and other green spaces, leave your garden to grow a little wild and plant weedkiller-free, wildlife-friendly plants and make bug-friendly choices with your food and support good farming practice. Begin to understand how reducing inequality and poverty will help nature and wildlife too—it’s all connected. We need to act now if we are to help the insects survive.
