For my exploration into the subject of the insect armageddon due to pollution, I wanted to identify and use real insects that have been affected by climate change.
Predicted to be extinct by 2037
Extinct in many parts of the Uk
If mammals die off they will too
Rocky Mountain Locust
Melanoplus Spretus (meaning dispised)
Completely wiped out throught the purposeful destruction of their habitats.
Great Yellow Bumblebee
The Uk’s most endangered bee species.
Green Ground Beetle
Critically endangered since 1980.
Gyronotus Perissonottoi Beetle
The most endangered type of Scarab beetle.
There are many insects in danger of extinction or already extinct due to the effects of pollution. These are just a small selection of those insects. It’s kind of sad how overlooked they are, they are so essential to the earths ecosystem.
