He thinks that observing bugs is a good way for children to learn about biodiversity. "There is a misconception that all bugs are dirty or poisonous. Actually most bugs thrive on cleanliness and are not dangerous," he says. He hopes to take more people to natural areas to see the bugs, discover their beauty and help protect them and the environment.

"When I met Tang in 2004, he was a graduate student in zoology, and a decade later, I followed suit, becoming a specialist. Now, when I hold science popularization lectures for young students, I hope I can inspire some of them to devote themselves to entomology like us," Song says.
