Here at Hampshire Countryside Service we’re on a mission! We’re working hard to create the ideal environment for pollinators by managing land to make sure there’s a diverse range of habitats. Because lots of different flowers, plants and trees means lots more bugs, butterflies and bees.
Our pollinators play a vital role for us. They help pollinate food crops and support a variety of wildlife by keeping our native plants healthy. Unfortunately, they are facing a number of threats meaning populations are in decline.
How can you help?
- From building bug hotels to letting a patch of garden grow wild – one small change can have a big impact. Will you join us and make your own pollinator pledge?
- Whether it’s making space for nature, reducing your environmental impact or supporting worthy causes, we can all do something to help.
- We’ve got video tutorials and blog articles with plenty of tips and tricks to make your gardens more pollinator-friendly.
