Letters to Insects
More than 32,000 species are threatened with extinction; that is 27% of all assessed species. Today, some 3,000 insects are known to be vulnerable, endangered or at risk of extinction. In our Beauty and the Beasts exhibition the public were invited to write a Letter to the Insect in response to the threats that many of them are facing.
