It’s not too late if you want to take part in the Great British Bee Count

From Friends of the Earth: “Insects play a vital role in keeping our ecosystems healthy. Amongst other things, they break down organic matter and enrich our soil, and provide food for larger animals in the food chain.

Bees – and other pollinating insects – are also essential in pollinating all sorts of plants, including many of our food crops. Their numbers have declined drastically in the last 60 years, and The Bee Cause campaign has highlighted how we can help them.”
