- Get involved in BeeWalk and other volunteering opportunities

Members receive a fantastic welcome pack, containing factsheets, bee-friendly wildflower seeds, a car window sticker, postcards, an enamel badge and a fold-out bumblebee identification guide and our Buzzword magazine three times per year. You can also receive exclusive access to our scientific supplement - Bombus Review. Scroll over each of the boxes below to view what's on offer for each membership type.
You can also purchase a Gift Membership for friends and family, which lasts the whole year and keeps on giving!
Choose an annual Direct Debit for automated renewals and help keep our admin costs down – so we can spend even more on bumblebee conservation! If you pay monthly, your membership includes an amount to cover our additional administration costs.
Or make a single payment (for one year only) using a credit/debit card or PayPal. We will send a reminder before your membership expires and if you wish to continue your membership you will need to renew by visiting the Member Portal on the website or sending a cheque.
