7 new insect species found in the Maritimes - New Brunswick - CBC News

There is so much, very basic, stuff that we don't know about our environment. Doesn't stop us from ruining it though.

“One problem with ... our understanding of pollinators, in general is there hasn’t been a lot of base line survey work. So, while these are new records for Nova Scotia, many of these species may well occur in New Brunswick,” Klymko said.

”But without baseline surveys, we don’t know what species are here and it would be impossible to know what species we’ve lost.”
