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.

Over the first five years of the OPAL project, more than half a million people from towns and cities up and down the country explored their local green spaces.

Many participants were carrying out a nature survey for the very first time and provided important data about biodiversity, including information about some places never sampled before by scientists.

The interim findings of these years were published in OPAL's Community Environment Report.
