Look for an insect or a bug and snap a photo of it before it scuttles or buzzes off
What difference does it make?
Insects are vital for pollinating our food. And they are nature's recyclers too - without them it would be game over for all of us.
What do you need?
- Phone with a camera
- The Wildlife Trusts' excellent invertebrate [guide](https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildlife-explorer/invertebrates "001 Snap a bug FAQ invertrebrate guide")
- Bug viewer pot (optional)
Step by step
Head outdoors and start hunting for insects! Look on flowers, on or under leaves, in sheltered patches of long grass and under stones and logs (take care when you lift them up).
If you find one, have a good look. See if you can work out what it is. The Wildlife Trusts have a really good, free guide to help you identify your insect
Once you've spotted it, take a photo. If you can get yourself into the photo, even better but we know that can be a challenge! Upload the photo and score your goal!
