Dung beetle life lessons

Persistence and Determination

Dung beetles are known for their relentless determination. They work tirelessly to roll dung balls, often many times their own size, to a suitable location for burial. This teaches us the importance of persistence in pursuing our goals, no matter how challenging they may be.


Dung beetles make the most of the resources available to them. They repurpose waste into sustenance and shelter. This teaches us the value of resourcefulness in making the best of what we have and finding opportunities in unexpected places.


Dung beetles are skilled navigators, using the sun and moon for guidance. This ability to adapt and use the available environmental cues to their advantage can remind us to be adaptable in our own lives, especially in the face of changing circumstances.

Cooperation and Teamwork

Some species of dung beetles work in pairs or groups to move and bury dung balls. This demonstrates the power of cooperation and teamwork, emphasizing that working together can lead to more tremendous success and efficiency.

Efficiency and Conservation

Dung beetles efficiently use resources and waste, minimizing waste and maximizing the utility of their actions. This teaches us the importance of efficiency and the responsible use of resources in our own lives.

Environmental Stewardship

Dung beetles play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of ecosystems by recycling organic matter. Their actions contribute to a healthier environment, reminding us of our responsibility to care for the planet and all its inhabitants.
