Invertebrates are abundant and all around us. Only the colorful ones have been known better and praised eg butterflies. There are others in the same family eg moths that have received less attention. Beetles are known for their commercial value in international trade or weevils are known as a pest. Spiders are colorful and plenty but have been portrayed as a fearsome creatures. Studies on mollusks are underway only very recently. There is so much biodiversity but so little has been done.
In matters of invertebrate conservation, we remain advised by Buglife International: the global conservation organization dedicated to conserving world’s invertebrate diversity.
