Lack of settlements threatens biodiversity

The national Swedish radio visited Lund to talk about pollinating insects and study their wintering sites.

Pollinating insects are threatened by food shortages, by toxins, by climate change and because environments where insects can seek protection are disappearing. Sara Sällström from the Swedish radio met CEC's Lina Herbertsson and Johan Ekroos in Dalby Söderskog, an environment where pollinating insects can find both food and places to live.

“It is important not only to focus on pollinating insects as a tool for pollination, we should also assume that they are an important part of biodiversity and therefore we should protect them”, says Lina Herbertsson.

“To save biodiversity, it is important to understand what kind of resources are missing, what limits the threatened species,” says Johan Ekroos.
