Pollinators maybe tiny but their impact is huge #GetCumbriaBuzzing
Pollinators maybe tiny but their impact is huge.
Fundamental to the web of life, pollinators help provide one third of the food we eat, pollinate more than 80% of our flowering plants and contribute around £690 million a year to the UK economy.
But pollinators are struggling and need our help.
More than half of UK bee, butterfly and moth species have declined in the past 50 years, and 30 species of bees face extinction. Over the last 75 years we’ve lost 97% of our flower rich meadows, 50% of our hedgerows, and 60% of flowering plants are in decline.
Much of the remaining flower rich habitat on which our pollinators depend, is now seriously fragmented or degraded.
To combat this loss, we’re working with local communities, and we have joined forces with a wide range of partners to take positive action for pollinators.
Together, we will create 115 hectares of wildflower rich habitat in Cumbria to help boost pollinators.
Help to #GetCumbriaBuzzing - By spreading the word and encouraging everyone to grow pollinator friendly plants, together we can make a real difference.
