We hope that this website has opened your eyes to the incredible universe beneath your feet, demonstrated how vulnerable and threatened our invertebrates are, and inspired you to help conserve the small things that run the world. It's time that we all start making a difference for our precious wildlife.

But there are other things that you can do as well...
Green fingers for a green earth
There are 15 million gardens in the UK covering around 270,000 hectares - that's more than all of the National Nature Reserves. Gardens provide an extremely important habitat for bugs and other wildlife. The way that you look after your garden - are you a budding environmentalist or an indiscriminate bug-killer? - can clearly make a difference to how wildlife-rich it is. The best gardens can be mini-nature reserves, packed with colourful and extraordinary bugs - what better way to get close to nature?
One of the most valuable ways for you to help conserve our wildife is to take part in a Buglife survey. With the help of volunteers up and down the country, these surveys help us discover how some of our rarest and most spectacular bugs are doing. To find out more click here.
