Insects are vital, fascinating, weird and wonderful. They are food, pollinators, recyclers, pest controllers, and much more, so we should be deeply concerned that they are in rapid decline. 

Coinciding with the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), Professor Dave Goulson, author of the bestselling ‘Silent Earth: Averting the Insect Apocalypse’, delves into the fascinating biology of bees, explains the many causes of insect decline, and turns to the solutions of this crisis.
