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 talks for community groups, old or young.
