Insects are at the bottom of every food chain yet at the top of the ecosystem because they’re are pollinators - therefore they are absolutely critical. Insects also play an important roles in our ecosystems preforming pest control, decomposition and food for other animals such as birds, reptiles and small mammals. Now reports indicate that more than 40 per cent of insect species could disappear within a span of 50 years as a third of insect species are endangered now. This could be the largest extinction event on Earth since the dinosaur era. The finger is being pointed at agriculture, urbanization, pesticides, pathogens and climate change. One study calls for the rethinking of our present agricultural practices, using less pesticides and finding more sustainable, environmentally based practices to allow the recovery of declining insect populations. Also the cleaning up of polluted waters in both agricultural and urban settings.
