This blog has been created to help one of the most important elements of nature - Bees. These little troopers are really struggling at the moment. We need bees not just for pollination, but to maintain the biodiversity of our precious planet. Why is this happening? Answers are beginning to emerge, but we need to work together. In this blog, you will find out where to get information, how you can help, and links to organisations that are working hard to save bees from extinction. Please help this cause - we need bees for much more than you think.

This blog will be updated regularly with new information about the bees. This will include links to press releases, articles and other web/blog pages.
