Bugs Britannica will be a nationwide chronicle of bug life in the 21st century. It will look at why bugs matter to us and why we care about them. It will record our continuing love-hate relationship with small life and how it influences our life and times, in a word, our culture. We want to find out what meaning we attach to bugs, what uses and entertainments we have made of them, how they inspire us whether in poetry, prose, film or song, and what we do to attract and conserve them.
Contributions towards this publication are being requested form anyone with an interest in bugs (that’ll be bugs in the sense of common usage of the term, rather than the true bugs, Hemiptera, specifically…). The page gives ideas of the kind of things they would like people to share.
I might even have a go myself.
