Plant your Bee Friendly Herbs and join in the Great British Bee Count. With the loss of most wildflower meadows over the last 60 years many bees have struggled to find enough food and already more than 20 species have become extinct. The Busy Bee is part of our landscape and in order for them to be preserved and flourish the Great British Bee Count has asked for your assistance. It’s really easy all you have to do is download the app. or visit the website below http://greatbritishbeecount.co.uk  and get counting. Match the Bee you have seen to the pictures and send the data to the scientists who will use the information to determine where Bees are thriving and where they are in decline, enabling the scientist to introduce measures to help the populations of Bee’s increase.  The Bee has an essential role in maintaining our food supply by pollinating the fruit and veg we eat every day, like apples and strawberries.  For your A3 size  “The Great British Bee Count”, poster simply text BEE to 78555 and for a £2 donation to “friends of the earth” you will receive your colourful bee spotting poster, so let’s get counting.
