And we’re talking tiny! Wilmer Valderrama, who never misses a moment to speak out against the abuse of elephants in circuses, is producing a new series called Bugging Out that explores the rainforest and it’s most fascinating inhabitants: insects. Wilmer champions these misunderstood animals and urges viewers to respect them for the unique and important beings they are. Says Wilmer, “Walking out and looking at the big tree and the tarantula on the wall. You learn to leave them alone, appreciate each other’s common grounds.”
Since “teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar,” we hope that others will follow Wilmer’s lead and learn how easy it is to live in harmony with insects.
