How do we create a Bee Friendly Monmouthshire?
Provide safe and sufficient habitat to maintain and increase healthy populations of indigenous pollinating insects.
Engage, influence and support the Welsh Government, key agencies, organisations, local and national authorities, councils, land owners, businesses, schools, communities and individuals to support these aims.
Raise public awareness of the importance of pollinating insects and the need for their protection.
Let’s make 2016 the year we bring an even louder buzz back to our garden! See our New Year Resolution for 2016
