Cumberland Council with Cumbria Wildlife Trust, have been working to reverse pollinator decline across north & west Cumbria.
The Planting for Pollinators project aims to create, improve and connect a mosaic of pollinator-friendly habitats, in turn providing food, shelter and nesting places for the likes of bees, butterflies, wasps and other insects.
Pollinator-friendly habitats include hedges, species rich grassland, scrub, deadwood, banks, glades and flower rich gardens.
