My Images of the Month for the past couple of months demonstrate the importance of preserving nature. Especially preserving nature where plants, insects and animals can survive.
The number of insects in my garden in Bedfordshire, UK has declined horrendously over the past few years as farmers spread chemicals on their fields, and developers gobble up green sites for building. Loss of habitat is a major contributor.
Overall, 76% of the UK’s resident and regular migrant butterfly species declined in either abundance or occurrence (or both) over the past four decades.Butterfly Concervation
Insects are declining at around 1% each year. That means an insect apocalypse in our children’s lifetime.
