They are a joy to see, and their presence is a sign of a healthy ecosystem. However, fireflies are declining in many parts of the world, including Bali.There are many reasons why fireflies are disappearing. One reason is habitat loss. Fireflies need clean air, non-contaminated water, and fertile soil to survive. When their habitats are destroyed, they cannot live there anymore.Another reason for firefly decline is light pollution. Fireflies use light to communicate with each other, and when there is too much artificial light, they cannot see each other. This can lead to problems with mating and reproduction.Finally, fireflies are also being harmed by pesticides. Pesticides can kill fireflies directly, or they can make it difficult for them to find food.The decline of fireflies is a serious problem. Fireflies are important pollinators, and they help to control insect pests. They also play a role in the food chain. Without fireflies, our ecosystems would be less healthy.By joining this activity, you'll not only experience the magic of these creatures but also support their conservation in the village. Your participation directly contributes to their protection and a sustainable environment.
