Polli:Nation survey - results from the first season

Pollinating insects, such as bees and butterflies, are in decline across the UK. These insects are homeless and hungry, suffering from a lack of places to nest and feed. To help reverse this trend, OPAL teamed up with Polli:Nation, a UK-wide conservation project working with schools, community groups and individuals to combat pollinator decline by creating or improving habitat for pollinators. The Polli:Nation survey was launched by OPAL in April this year to help people measure the impact of habitat improvements on pollinators. And the first survey season’s results are now in.
