About the Bumblebee Conservation Trust

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established in 2006 because of serious concerns about the ‘plight of the bumblebee’. In the last 80 years bumblebee populations have crashed in the UK. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically. Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers, so people are rightly worried.

The Trust has a vision to create a world where bumblebees are thriving and valued. Supporting the work of the Trust through fundraising and donations enables their conservation and science team to deliver practical conservation to restore and create bumblebee habitat, provide ID training, provide advice to farmers and landowners, engage the general public and much more to take action for this charismatic insect.
