#Wildlife presenters Steve Backshall, Michaela Strachan and Miranda Krestovnikoff are urging people to get outside and take part in the Great British #Bee Count 2015, which is taking place throughout #May 2015.
Organised by Friends of the Earth, Buglife and Waitrose, the Great British Bee Count aims to build on the huge success of last year’s inaugural event, when over 23,000 people took part, spotting over 830,000 bees.
Gardeners are also being encouraged to take easy steps to make their gardens more bee-friendly, and help provide crucial havens for our threatened pollinators.
Wildlife presenter Steve Backshall said: “Bees are our pals; without their pollinating powers, our planet would grind to a halt. So get out, have a fun day in the countryside, and do a bit of citizen science counting our buzzing buddies!”
The data can be easily recorded via the free smartphone app, which went live on 1 May. The app can be downloaded from Itunes or the Google Play store. To find out more about the event, including how to take part, click on: www.greatbritishbeecount.co.uk
