Great British bee count

17 May to 30 June is the Great British Bee Count! Discover the range and numbers of bees in our allotments, gardens, streets and green spaces

Bees are fascinating, beautiful and essential to us. We need them to pollinate many plants (including most of our fruit & veg) but the UK’s lost 13 species of bee since 1900, and 35 are now under threat of extinction.

Do record especially the wild bees you spot this summer with Friends of the Earth's free and fun app. Join the buzz, help save our bees & sign up for the app via
