I concur with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1943): we are born with a strong appreciation of the world around us that most of us lose as we grow up. While few adults have much empathy with insects, they are a source of fascination for most children, at least until they start school. The problem facing professional entomology is how to sustain and encourage that early attitude so that we recruit passionate and well-prepared people into the profession, and sensitise the remainder of the population to the value of insects.
