While most people know about our Honey Bee, Friends of the Earth is raising awareness about the incredible diversity of British bee species that we rely on to pollinate our garden plants, food crops and wildflowers.
Ogilvy’s supports our British bees working with local beekeepers who are as passionate as we are about bees, beekeeping and honey.
The Great British Bee Count app will introduce you to some of our common (and not so common) wild species, including solitary bees and bumblebees – see the Bee identification guide.
Friends of the Earth, supported by celebrities including Michaela Strachan and Ellie Harrison, are encouraging nature-lovers to record the bees they spot this summer with the free Great British Bee Count app, and learn more about these special pollinators – and help experts learn more too.
The humble bee is a vital pollinator. Buzzing around our gardens and countryside, it’s a hard working little insect that pollinates our flowers and crops. But unfortunately these beautiful insects are under-threat.
By joining the Great British Bee Count you can find out more about the wonderful world of bees, and what you can do to help the plight of the humble bee. The free app includes tips on creating bee-friendly spaces, and will help you find out more about our buzzy friends. So download the app and get spotting!
