Help Protect Our Plants with Izzy the Inspector



Hi, I’m Izzy the Inspector and I love my fascinating job as a plant inspector. I look at plants in garden centres, trees in the woods and fruit and vegetables arriving at airports. I look to see if there are any pests on them, or if they are healthy or sick. A pest is a living thing that can hurt plants. Let me tell you why plants are important and why we need to keep them healthy. Maybe you can help?



Plants feed us: 80% of the food we eat comes from plants.

Plants help us breathe: plants produce 98% of the oxygen we breathe.

Plants reduce pollution: plants help remove pollution from the air, which means we have cleaner air to breathe.

Plants are home to wildlife: oak trees in the UK can have over 2,000 different animals, plants and fungi living on and in them.
