Wildlife conservation; insect communication
The Saving Our World packs hope to inspire you to think more deeply about wildlife conservation by delving into real-world themes and issues. The first pack Saving Our World: past, present and future compared two case studies, one based in the UK and one based in Southeast Asia.
This resource; Butterfly, discusses why we must first understand an insect species lifecycle in order to conserve it well.
Note for teachers: We have designed this resource with differentiation in mind. For KS3 or lower-ability levels, focus on sections one and two. Students at KS4-5 or with a particular interest in conservation science can explore the rest of the pack at their own pace.
