No, not Santa’s elves! These little helpers are much much smaller and deserve our help! What a great infogram! Kudos to whomever took the time to make it. Thanks!

Come Dine with bee

The Urban Pollinators Project team have recently launched a new and exciting crowdfunding campaign called ‘Come Dine With Bee’. The Scheme is administered by WALACEA ” Back science you believe in” with other wildlife science based projects seeking funding for research.

“Parsnips, Brussels sprouts and cranberries all require bees for commercial growing,” explains research technician Helen Morse from the University of Bristol’s Urban Pollinator Project, “while the spices and herbs of mulled wine, stuffing and bread sauce are all dependent on insects.”
