Something we take for granted is the lights that we keep on at night. To us, it may mean just illuminating dark streets, but to some insect species, it causes their population decline. According to an article from The Guardian, "The most familiar impact of light pollution is moths flapping around a bulb, mistaking it for the moon. One-third of insects trapped in the orbit of such lights die before morning, according to work cited in the review, either through exhaustion or being eaten."
It is easy to say we care about nature, more challenging to truly embrace all that caring for nature entails. It means that not only do we check our intentions, but we also actively seek out information to do the right thing, to reduce harm, to create more harmony. Insects are part of nature too, their lives matter to them, and we need them for a balanced ecosystem.
