Message from Friends of the Earth - Bee Saver Kits:
For many of you, us bees are probably the last thing on your minds right now. But without us, the impact on global economy and food chains would be devastating. That’s because we pollinate so many of the crops and plants that provide food and habitat for all sorts of other creatures – including you!
A changing climate and dwindling nature means double trouble for us bees. We’ve already lost 97% of wildflower meadows since the 1930s so we’re finding it harder than ever to survive. And as we approach summer it means we’ll have to fly even further to find flowers, and compete with other insects for the limited pollen and nectar. That’s partly why as many as 35 species of my fellow bees are on the UK’s threatened species list.
As if that wasn’t hard enough to deal with, we’re also suffering from the extreme weather brought about by climate change. Drought, flooding, and shifting seasons have all made it difficult to find food and shelter.
You can change that though by donating for a Bee Saver Kit. They also make a lovely gift for a friend to show that you’re thinking of them at this time.
Your new-look Bee Saver Kit will include:
Wildflower seeds – to help provide vital food and habitat for us.
Bee saver guide – tips to save bees like us, and how to build a bee hotel.
Bee spotter guide – to identify our bee friends visiting your garden.
Garden planner – to help you plan a bee-friendly garden.
Bee postcard – to send to your loved ones.
Bee Saver Kit folder – to store your bee-saving materials in one place.
