Habitat loss and chronic exposure to pesticides, are two of the major causes of this looming catastrophe. In a report just published, Professor Dave Goulson, summarises some of the best available evidence of insect loss and proposes actions that must be taken to recover their diversity and abundance.
3 out of 4 of all the crops we grow require pollination by insects and 87% of all plant species rely on pollination by insects.
The good news is that it’s not too late to act. By working together, we can change the future of insects by taking two simple actions.
STOP killing insects by reducing our use of pesticides where we live, work and farm
START to create more insect-friendly habitats in towns, cities and the countryside.
