Rebugging the Planet
Author(s): Vicki Hird
Foreword by Gillian Burke
This is a lovely little book that could and should have a big impact....Let's all get rebugging right away! Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
Meet the intelligent insects, marvellous minibeasts and inspirational invertebrates that bring life to our planet. Discover how we can 'rebug' our attitudes and embrace these brilliant, essential insects, so that we can avoid an 'insectageddon' and help each other thrive.
In Rebugging the Planet, Vicki Hird shows us that bugs are beautiful, inventive
and economically invaluable. They are also responsible for pollinating plants,
feeding birds, defending crops and cleaning water systems. But with 40% of insect species at risk of extinction and a third more endangered, our planet is headed towards an insect apocalypse. We have to start giving worms, spiders, beetles, ladybirds and butterflies the space they need to flourish!
Discover how to:
Grow your garden a little wild and plant weedkiller-free, wildlife-friendly plants
Take your kids on a bug treasure hunt and build a bug palace in your garden
Rebug parks, schools, pavements, verges and other green spaces
Make bug-friendly food choices and support good farming practices
Rebugging the Planet shows how small changes will have a big impact on our littlest allies - and our planet.
Hird's joy in bug life is infectious and her knowledge encyclopaedic...If you've ever asked what bugs have done for us, read this book! Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP
