Follow a bumblebee
Follow a bumblebee on its bustling, bumbling journey. Stay sharp -you’ll need your eyes and ears to keep up!
It’s a sad fact that our native bees are in decline. In fact, over the last 50 years the population has declined by 50%. We need bees and other pollinators!
Imagine a world with no flowers, fruit, no chocolate, or coffee even! All of these things are here thanks to the hard work of our bees and other pollinators, spreading pollen from flower to flower. But our native pollinators are in decline and a loss of pollination will have a detrimental affect on everyone. They are valued by you, the public and play a vital role in the production of the food and drinks that we consume. Insect pollinators matter.
Follow a bee on it’s journey (and give it a helping hand if you can).
If you find a bee on the ground, it might be that it’s blood sugar is too low. Mix up some sugar water and put it in a bottle cap next to the bee for a boost.
