Bee Happy - A Strategy for Bees and other Pollinators

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The parks, fields, gardens, open spaces, allotments, and farmland across our town rely on the service pollination provides. Pollinators including bees, butterflies, hoverflies, wasps, beetles and flies are vital contributors to our landscapes, our economy and our food industry.

Evidence has shown that one-third of pollinating insects have seen population declines in parts of the UK from 1980 to 2013, which is particularly the case among rarer species, such as solitary bees (Powney et al., 2019). Action must be taken to promote the conservation of all pollinators.

This strategy provides a framework for Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to improve the overall status and reduce losses in the diversity of pollinator species within the borough.

Consultation closes 16th February 2021
