Insect Week returns in 2022

Action for Insects School Guide

Our bugs, moths, butterflies and other insects are in deep trouble. Insects are dying out up to 8 times faster than larger animals, and 41% of insights face extinction. But it's not too late! THe Wildlife Trusts' Action for Insects campaign has been created to help these special creatures, and we want schools to take part. They've produced a school guide, full of lessons plans and resources to help your school to take action for insects. 

Whether it's through a bug hunt, creating insect homes in your school grounds, or delivering a campaign to help insects, there are lots of ways that your school can make a difference and learn at the same time.
