Why not join the Great British Bee Count and help build a nationwide picture of bees’ health. There’s currently no accurate picture of the condition of bees in the UK.
We know that bees are dying, going hungry and becoming homeless. One of the UK's buggest problems is the loss of vital habitat - with 97% of wildflower meadows have disappeared in the past 60 years.
Already more than 20 species of bee have become extinct - and more than a quarter are under threat.
We can all do something. TBees provide an essential link in our food chain - every day we eat fruit and vegetables pollinated by bees.
You can help scientists keep track of bees’ health. You don’t need to be an expert to take part, just download the app and get recording.
Scientists will be able to use your data to see where bees are thriving – and where they’re in trouble. To help experts assess the practical steps needed to reverse the decline of our bees, this information about location and numbers is crucial.
As well as recording your bee sightings for the Great British Bee Count, you can help bees by growing plants they need for food and shelter, at home or in your local area.
Are there any bees in your garden? In your local park? Which types of bee do you see?
