    Rebugging the Planet by Vicki Hird

    he Remarkable Things that Insects (and Other Invertebrates) Do – And Why We Need to Love Them More

    "This is a lovely little book that could and should have a big impact...Let's all get rebugging right away!"—Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

    Meet the intelligent insects, marvelous minibeasts, and inspirational invertebrates that help shape our planet—and discover how you can help them help us by rebugging your attitude today!

    Remember when there were bugs on your windshield? Ever wonder where they went? We need to act now if we are to help the insects survive. Robin Wall Kimmerer, David Attenborough, and Elizabeth Kolbert are but a few voices championing the rewilding of our world. Rebugging the Planet explains how we are headed toward "insectageddon" with a rate of insect extinction eight times faster than that of mammals or birds, and gives us crucial information to help all those essential creepy-crawlies flourish once more.

    Author Vicki Hird passionately demonstrates how insects and invertebrates are the cornerstone of our global ecosystem. They pollinate plants, feed birds, support and defend our food crops, and clean our water systems. They are also beautiful, inventive, and economically invaluable—bees, for example, contribute an estimated $235 to $577 billion to the US economy annually, according to Forbes.

    Rebugging the Planet shows us small changes we can make to have a big impact on our littlest allies:
    • Learn how to rewild parks, schools, sidewalks, roadsides, and other green spaces.
    • Leave your garden to grow a little wild and plant weedkiller-free, wildlife-friendly plants.
    • Take your kids on a minibeast treasure hunt and learn how to build bug palaces.
    • Make bug-friendly choices with your food and support good farming practices
    • Begin to understand how reducing inequality and poverty will help nature and wildlife too—it's all connected.

    So do your part and start rebugging today! The bees, ants, earthworms, butterflies, beetles, grasshoppers, ladybugs, snails, and slugs will thank you—and our planet will thank you too.


    “这是一本可爱的小书,可以而且应该产生很大的影响……让我们立即进行调试!”—Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall


    还记得挡风玻璃上有虫子的时候吗?有没有想过他们去了哪里?如果我们要帮助昆虫生存,我们需要立即采取行动。 Robin Wall Kimmerer、David Attenborough 和 Elizabeth Kolbert 只是支持我们世界重新野化的少数声音。 Rebugging the Planet 解释了我们如何以比哺乳动物或鸟类快 8 倍的昆虫灭绝速度走向“昆虫灭绝”,并为我们提供了重要信息,以帮助所有这些重要的爬行动物再次蓬勃发展。

    作者 Vicki Hird 热情地展示了昆虫和无脊椎动物如何成为我们全球生态系统的基石。他们为植物授粉、喂养鸟类、支持和保护我们的粮食作物,并清洁我们的水系统。它们也很漂亮、有创造力,而且在经济上是无价的——例如,据福布斯报道,蜜蜂每年为美国经济贡献了大约 235 到 5770 亿美元。

    Rebugging the Planet 向我们展示了我们可以做出的微小改变来对我们最小的盟友产生重大影响:
    • 了解如何重新规划公园、学校、人行道、路边和其他绿地。
    • 让您的花园种植一些野生植物,并种植不含除草剂、对野生动物友好的植物。
    • 带您的孩子去寻宝,学习如何建造虫子宫殿。
    • 为您的食物做出对虫子友好的选择并支持良好的农业实践
    • 开始了解减少不平等和贫困如何也有助于自然和野生动物——这一切都是相互关联的。
