Because we need bees.

With other pollinating insects, they're vital to:

Our food supply - they pollinate most of our fruit and veg
Our economy - without bees costs for farmers would rise, meaning higher food prices
Our quality of life - our gardens, parks and countryside

Because bees need us.

British bee numbers have fallen dramatically in recent years. And the way we farm our food and plan our towns and cities is making the problem worse.
