NCC: Chemical Usage Awareness and Education

Raise awareness of the impact of chemical use on local wildlife species, including insects and frogs.

Why it is Important?

There is increasing concern about the impacts of chemical use – from both industrial activities and households – on local wildlife species. A comprehensive program to collect more data is needed, particularly for vulnerable species like frogs and bees, so actions can be taken to reduce the threats.

Examples of Local Action

  • Conduct more toxicology testing of sick frogs to determine what’s causing the illness.
  • Conduct insect surveys to determine changes to populations.
  • Survey beekeepers to identify problems with bee health.
