Insects are the most diverse group of living organisms, comprising approximately 80% of the world’s known species. Despite often being regarded as annoying and pesky, insects play vital roles in providing essential ecosystem services, and as one of the most important food sources in the food web. To bolster understanding and appreciation of the group of organisms commonly known as bugs, Biodiversity Conservancy International is providing a half-day educational workshop to highlight the indispensable role of insects in sustaining life on Earth.
