Wilson discusses the vast importance of insects to our living environment….he focuses on the massive scale of insect life that is simply unknown and yet are key parts of our great chain of life.
Also: there’s a fabulous vid-within-vid moment accompanied by Billie Holiday. Worth a watch and a listen.
So, what is E. O. Wilson’s one wish? That we work together to build the Encyclopedia of Life– built and shared by all communities around the world. For the first time ever, the ability to gather and share the enormous magnitude of knowledge about science, biology, the climate, global warming, species preservation–the ability to gather this information is within reach due to the internet.
Well, if you check out eol.org, it looks like Wilson got his wish. Cool.
