Buglife – The Invertebrate Conservation Trust is nature conservation charity headquartered in Cambridgeshire, England with additional offices in Scotland and the South West of England. Buglife, registered as a Company on 29 December 2000, is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates, and are actively working to save invertebrates, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.

• Undertaking practical conservation projects.
• Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
• Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
• Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
• Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
• Bug Walks: A Buglife bug walk is an opportunity to learn about amazing invertebrate wildlife close up! A bug expert will lead your walk and be available to answer your questions
