Watch: Build an ‘insect hotel’ with Clare Agius

To promote the International Day for Biological Diversity, the Environment & Research Authority (ERA) asked presenter and actress Clare Agius to join them in raising awareness about the importance of insects and how ‘insect hotels’ can help biodiversity.

“Biodiversity boosts our ecosystem in a way that we can enjoy a variety of nature and foods so in a very simple context, I can explain it to all out there by asking them one simple question: ‘when you go shopping for food, would you prefer to have 200 different types of foods to choice from or 20?’ Without biodiversity thriving, we will have just 20, so it is within all our interests to not only look after our biodiversity but understand what is endangering some species and what we can do to help if we still wish to have this variety in life,” Claire told Newsbook.com.mt.
