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 completed a major upgrade to our Bee kind tool. We are part of the Rethink Nature partnership, a group of leading science conservation organisations, leading on the Shrill carder recovery project with Buglife, as part of the Back from the Brink project.
Our current projects:
- Making a Buzz for the Coast
- Pollinating the Peak
- Saving Scotland’s bumblebees
- Short-haired bumblebee reintroduction project
- ‘Back from the Brink’ Shrill carder bee recovery project
- West Country Buzz

We are partners on a number of projects being led by other NGOs/academic partners. You can read about these projects here.
