National Insect Week returns in 2020
Jess French, presenter of CBeebies series 'Minibeast Adventures with Jess', tells us of her experiences working with children and her joy in seeing their enthusiasm for insects and the natural world.
National Insect Week encourages people of all ages to learn more about insects.
Every two years, the Royal Entomological Society organises the week, supported by a large number of partner organisations with interests in the science, natural history and conservation of insects.
