Nature

We want a healthy planet that provides a good life for everyone on it now and for the future. The Earth will go on supporting us if we look after it. It’s clear what we must do to protect our world – and provide for a growing population.

Manchester Friends of the Earth is involved in a range of biodiversity campaigns, which mainly concentrate on protecting our bees and other pollinating insects. As well as campaigning and raising awareness, at Manchester FOE we have been supporting bees by creating more bee-friendly habitats around Greater Manchester and promoting bee-friendly rapeseed oil. Our campaigns cover three main areas: encouraging local councils and the Government to take action as part of the Bee Cause campaign, helping people find out how to buy bee-friendly rapeseed oil, and giving people advice on how to set up bee-friendly habitats.

If you would like to get involved with Manchester FOE’s nature campaign please contact Damian at damian@manchesterfoe.org.uk or Cat at cat@manchesterfoe.org.uk.
