In the UK along, pollinators contribute £690 million worth of crops to the economy. But our bee populations are under threat. EJF examines the challenges facing bee populations and what can be done to tackle this growing threat.
The March of the Beekeepers saw EJF, PAN UK and passionate beekeepers come together to demonstrate on Parliament Square, ahead of a European Parliament vote which enforced a two year ban on the Neonicotinoid pesticides thought to be dangerous to bees.
Bees and other pollinators are a vital part of our food supply yet are in decline. EJF is working to reduce the use of pesticides and encourage the protection of the wild habitat they depend upon.
