The Great British Bee Count 2016

Join the Great British Bee Count

25th April 2017

Join us for the Great British Bee Count from 19 May – 30 June 2017 and discover the wonderful world of bees in our gardens, streets and green spaces this summer.

Bees are essential: we rely on them to pollinate many of the plants in our landscape, including our most of our fruit and veg.

But right now they’re in trouble. Since 1900, the UK has lost 20 species of bee, and a further 35 are considered under threat of extinction. So it’s vital that we better understand how they’re doing across the country. You can help by counting and recording all the bees you see this summer with our free app.

Last year we spotted 383,759 bees – and helped us build build important information about bee population. This year we’d love even more of you to join the buzz, and be part of the generation that helps save our bees.

Sign up now to be one of the first to download the Great British Bee Count app on 19 May 2017.
