Without pollinators, we would have no apples and strawberries,  few berries for the  birds, and, most importantly, no seeds for new generations of plants. Unless you live within a mile or two of a beekeeper, the chances are that most of that work is quietly being done for you by wild pollinators – bumble bees, solitary bees or hoverflies.

Recent studies have shown that wild pollinators make a major contribution to our staple food crops, yet at the same time their numbers are steadily declining in many parts of the world.

This resource is for anyone who wants to preserve and encourage pollinating insects in their neighbourhood.
