Headquartered in Peterborough, England, the nonprofit Buglife describes itself as "the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates [...], everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish." Readers curious to learn more about invertebrates should begin by exploring the About Bugs section, where they will find an approachable introduction to how scientists classify invertebrates and downloadable charts to aid in identifying invertebrates. This section also contains their engaging Bug of the Month series, as well as information specific to spiders and pollinators. Those interested in Buglife's numerous conservation activities should check out the What We Do section and for readers keen to foster a healthy invertebrate community the Wildlife Gardening section (found under Get Involved) offers ample helpful ideas. While Buglife's website primarily focuses on bugs found in Britain, it also includes some information on species in other parts of the world. Founded in 2000 as the Invertebrate Conservation Trust, the organization officially launched as Buglife in 2004 and has since expanded to include multiple offices throughout the United Kingdom and more than 30 member organizations. As of this write-up, Buglife's leadership includes its founder, conservationist Alan Stubbs, and the well-known biologist Edward O. Wilson, as well as many others.
