Recent studies show that we are in the middle of a massive species extinction. Bees, bumble- bees and beetles are dying on our doorstep and birds, frogs and many other species are disappearing with them.

What we are losing with these insects is not just the foundation of an intact ecosystem; the extinction of pollinators puts the food supply of countless people in jeopardy.
Why do we need insects? Is their disappearance just a caprice of nature? Who or what is responsible for it? The insect researcher Andreas Segerer explains the interrelationships and identifies what needs to happen now. Eva Rosenkranz supplies plenty of practical tips, as everyone can do something to stop the world falling silent – whether by having an insect-friendly garden or through engagement in our own environment, for example by helping to establish species-rich public green spaces.
