Find out why bugs are so important - to humans, animals and the survival of our planet
Our amazing bugs are in trouble. Without bugs, plants would not be able to make flowers or fruit. If bugs disappeared, so would strawberries, apples, beans and tomatoes, and even chocolate. Without them, we couldn't grow enough food to feed us all.
If we lost bugs, we would also lose creatures who depend on them for survival, such as songbirds, badgers, bats and fish.
Did you know that one in three mouthfuls of our food depends on insect pollination? Or that honey, oranges and silk would not exist without invertebrates? Ninety per cent of wildflowers would become extinct if there were no bugs were pollinating them.
This book shows the reasons why bugs are so important, to humans, animals and the survival of our planet. You can also discover what you can do to help protect bugs.
Find out how bugs really can save the world and do your bit to help them, too!
