Details of the day-to-day life on the project:
Our Conservation and Science team members are delivering on the ground conservation work, working with landowners and land managers and other organisations to secure, create and monitor habitat for our rarest bumblebee species. Our Science team members are involved with running the national bumblebee recording scheme (BeeWalk) and using this data to inform our conservation activities, advising and influencing policy relating to bumblebees and disseminating the latest bumblebee research findings.
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is a UK based national charity and was established in 2006 because of serious concerns about the ‘plight of the bumblebee’. In the last 80 years, our bumblebee populations have crashed. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically.
We have a vision for a different future in which our communities and countryside are rich in bumblebees and colourful wild flowers, supporting a diversity of wildlife and habitats for everyone to enjoy.
We are working toward three main aims:
Support the conservation of all bumblebees, rare or abundant.
Raise awareness and increase understanding about bumblebees and the social, economic, environmental and cultural benefits which they and other pollinators provide.
Ensure the Trust is sustainable, fit for purpose, and able to respond quickly to challenges and change.
