About

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 for a different future in which our communities and countryside are rich in bumblebees and colourful flowers, supporting a diversity of wildlife and habitats for everyone to enjoy. A growing number of committed supporters are helping our small team of staff make a big difference.

Support our Work

Bumblebees are a critical part of the natural environment, therefore it is vital that we take action to help save these charming creatures from further population declines. There are many ways to support our work including, becoming an individual member, making a one off donation to help save the sound of summer, associate your business with us by becoming a Business Member to support the work of the Trust, carrying out individual fundraising, or remembering us in your Will.

Gardening for Bumblebees

Whether you have a window box, allotment or large garden, planting bee-friendly flowers can help boost your local bumblebee population. In return, they will dutifully pollinate our flowers, crops, fruits and vegetables. The best habitats for bumblebees are those that offer plenty of flowers to feed on during the entire active phase of the bees’ lifecycle (from March until October). This will ensure that there is a good supply of pollen at all of the crucial times. Try out our Bee kind tool to see how your garden scores so far and to receive guidance on the best flowers to plant to make your garden even more bee-friendly.
