The biomass of flying insects decreased within 27 years by up to 75 percent. At the same time the insects in their diversity are not only an irreplaceable food source for other animals, almost all plants are pollinated by insects. In order to draw attention to the dramatic situation, NABU has called for an interactive campaign – “The Insect Summer”.
Insect scouts are to enthuse the world for insects and support with the identification of insects. VGP Foundation is supporting the project, which aims to build up a network of experts and from 2021 to 2022 in total 32 people, spread over all states, are to be trained.
