Why are Insects Important?

Written by Nancy Miorelli

You know, it seems strange that it’s taken us more than 3 years to address this question! I’ve been doing a few interviews recently and I keep getting asked “Why are Insect Important?” In fact, it was the FIRST questions that I had to fill out for my Real Scientists welcome introduction!

So – I tweeted about it!


Nancy Miorelli, @SciBugs, is living in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest in the Maquipucuna Reserve.
To help fund her stay she sells eco-friendly bug jewelry featuring jewel beetle shells and an Ecuadorian nut called Tagua!
Check out her shop SciBugsCollections on Etsy!
