"We are witnessing the largest extinction event on Earth since the dinosaurs"
This is a grave cause for concern - it impacts us all as well as all wildlife. Insects pollinate three quarters of our food crops, as well as being the main food source for many birds, small mammals and fish.
Loss of their habitat and overuse of pesticides are two of the major causes of this looming catastrophe. However, the good news is that it’s not too late to act.
Insect populations can recover, and we know what needs to be done to save them.
By working together we can change the future of insects, starting right now, you can help by taking our pledge to take two simple actions in your home or outside space that will make a difference .
Two actions that will make a real difference
1. STOP killing insects by reducing your use of harmful chemicals at home

The Wildlife Trust's new report ‘Reversing the Decline of Insects’ shows how people, in every part of society, wherever they live, can take action to bring back insects. Everyone, everywhere, is being asked to become an insect champion. The report cites examples of farmers, communities, councils and charities that are boosting insect populations and proving that it can be done.
