5. Why we need more entomologists
41% of insect species are in decline. Of that percentage, one third are going extinct. These scary figures from University of Sydney honorary associate Dr Sanchez-Bayo show us just why we need to have more entomologists.
If this sounds like a great career path for you, check out the journey of entomologist and science communicator, Shasta Henry.
