Let's invite wildlife back
The Wildlife Trusts and the RHS set up Wild About Gardens to celebrate wildlife gardening and to encourage people to use their gardens to take action to help support nature. We’re going wild about beetles!
Beetles are a vital part of any wildlife garden. They will munch on garden insects like aphids and snails, whilst acting as food for our larger garden visitors such as hedgehogs and birds. Unfortunately, beetle populations are threatened by things like pesticides, habitat loss and climate change – but you can help!
Generations Working Together has met with one primary school in West Dumbarton who are taking part in going wild about beetles, they are hoping to link in with a local sheltered housing space and involve younger and older people in a conversation about beetles.
