Endangered Insects

Human beings also pose a severe threat to many species of insects. Like animals, there are many insect species that are either endangered or have already become extinct. This includes numerous species of butterflies, beetles, grasshoppers and ants. This is usually the result of increasing habitat loss. Sympathy is not normally as strong for endangered insects as it is for animals. However, insects are an integral part of the ecosystem. Many efforts are in progress to help save their habitats and increase the endangered insect populations.
