Help save wildlife by planting native trees, shrubs, and vines, if you can.
As development and habitat destruction accelerate, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. In Bringing Nature Home, Douglas Tallamy reveals the unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife. Native insects cannot, or will not, eat alien plants. When native plants disappear, the insects disappear, impoverishing the food source for birds and other animals. There is an important and simple step we can all take to help reverse this alarming trend. Everyone with access to a patch of earth can make a significant contribution toward sustaining biodiversity by simply choosing native plants. By acting on Tallamy's practical recommendations, we can all make a difference. .
