About the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Insects
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Insects is a society for the promotion of insect health and welfare primarily in the United Kingdom but also throughout the world. Insects are some of the most valuable and yet most persecuted members of our society, and yet precious little is being done to protect them.
The SPCI is campaigning for the new Insect Welfare Bill to become law, which would for the first time protect millions of insects and other invertebrates from enduring serious ongoing neglect and cruelty each year, by legally obliging people to care for insects properly.
Although the society is still in its infancy, we are hoping to follow the example of the RSPCA and attain royal approval to become the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Insects.
