I Brake for Dung Beetles!

26.01.2009 | Categories: Footage from the Field,Video Back to Gallery List

Here at The WILD Foundation, we realize that it is not just those large, charismatic animals that inspire conservation – it is often the small, typically unnoticed and vastly under-appreciated ones that inspire us the most….and that are an indispensible part of the ecosystem! We’ve always had a soft spot in our hearts for the fabulous dung beetle. Pound for pound, these amazing creatures are an unmatched resource for wild nature everywhere, and world servers of immense value…yes indeed. So, in honor of the smaller but very industrious parts of wild nature, we want to celebrate dung beetles!

We hope that you will enjoy this short, humorous clip of some dung beetles at work. We also hope that you will share our appreciation for the dung beetle and other small creatures by supporting our work to protect wilderness as a whole – not just the species or landmarks within it.

To celebrate the dung beetle, all new donors to WILD will receive an “I Brake for Dung Beetles” bumper sticker – sure to create some interesting opportunities for you to share what you’ve learned about these amazing, small creatures! Read more about our Dung Beetle Campaign and get your bumper sticker today>>
