Bumblebees are amongst the most important of wild pollinators; many wildflowers would not set seed without them, and they are the main pollinators of crops such as tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries. Concerningly, many bumblebees are in decline, with 3 species now extinct in the UK and the first global extinction recently occurring in USA . Dave Goulson will discuss the drivers of these declines, including the impacts of pesticides. He will highlight the many things we can all do to halt and reverse them to ensure a future for these endearing and vitally important insects. Perhaps, if we save a bee today, we can save the world tomorrow.
