One of the many successes of our Bees for Everyone project (which ran from 2011 - 2015) was the development of lasting partnerships which have evolved into new and exciting projects.
Many of our projects continue work within the rare bumblebee zones where the Great yellow bumblebee or the Shrill carder bee (two of the rarest bumblebee species in the UK) are still found. Additionally, we expanded into the Midlands in search of the Bilberry bumblebee with our Pollinating the Peak project. This landmark project launched the Bumblebee Education Experience (B.E.E) in 2018, bringing bumblebees and pollination to the forefront of secondary school education and recently launched the 'What's that bumblebee' App. We are also part of the Rethink Nature partnership, a group of leading science conservation organisations.
Our current projects:
- A conservation strategy for the Shrill carder bee
- Fowey Valley bumblebee project
- Making a Buzz for the Coast
- Pollinating the Peak
- Saving the Great Yellow bumblebee
- Short-haired bumblebee reintroduction project
- Skills for Bees: Cymru
- West Country Buzz
