“Buglife – The Invertebrate Conservation Trust is the first organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates, and is actively engaged in saving Britain’s rarest bugs, slugs, snails, bees, wasps, ants, spiders, beetles and many more fascinating invertebrates.”

The purists amongst us might object to the term ‘bug’ being used in such a way but invertebrates, not being cute and cuddly in the main, need support so I’m prepared to overlook it.
