Have you ever stopped to consider how many species of beetles there are in the world? The answer is a lot! No-one knows for sure how many there are, but there is a group of people trying to find new species. Their methods may seem a little strange to those of us uninitiated in the way of the beetle hunt – but they get results. They are working on “The Tree of Life Project” which is trying to map all life on the planet, of which beetles are a vital part. So join filmmaker Sarah Jackson as she takes us across the world on “A Wild Beetle Chase.”
