The UK's bumblebees are in crisis

Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers, so people are rightly worried. With disappearing nature corridors, urgent action is needed to provide habitat and protect their populations.

They are hungry and homeless

Changes to our landscape mean good nesting and flowers are now in short supply.

We need them

Bumblebees are responsible for the pollination of wildflowers, fruits and vegetables.

They need our help

By providing better connected habitat across our cities and countryside.
