It’s day two of #30DaysWild and today, we’re saving insects!
Insects, from bees to butterflies to beetles, are AMAZING – a third of our food crops are pollinated by them, and many other animals rely on them for food, including hedgehogs and birds. Sadly, 41% of insects face extinction – threatened with losing their homes, the use of chemicals in our gardens and on our crops, and climate change. But you can help!
Insects like bumblebees need our help Here are three easy ways to help insects:
- Say NO to pesticides in your garden ⛔️
- Leave a patch of your lawn to grow long 🌱
- Make a mini pond for water-based insects! 💦
