So, what do we do? Bee Friendly!
Friends of the Earth Cymru has joined with the Welsh Government to launch a world first initiative to protect bees and other pollinators in Wales.
The scheme, where participating groups complete “tasks” under the headings habitat, forage, pesticides and community involvement, is hoped to stimulate far more activism, far more interest in pollinators and help conserve and protect the future of our Bees!
The scheme is a new initiative from the Pollinator Taskforce which was set up following the successful launch of the Welsh Government’s Action Plan for Pollinators.
The initiative includes a network of regional “Bee Champions” to help participating groups plan their projects and future years will see bronze, silver and gold standards introduced to keep Wales buzzing.
The aim is to make Wales the first pollinator-friendly nation in the world!
So get busy for the bees! And help our pollinators: sign our petition!
