A group of leading conservationists have committed to work together to save the rarest bumblebee in England and Wales, the Shrill carder bee.

From today (14 July 2020) more than 30 organisations and dozens of individuals, including conservation charities, government bodies, volunteers, farmers, and businesses, will collaborate on a multi year vision to create a landscape where Shrill carder bee populations can survive and thrive.

The group will be guided by the newly published Shrill carder bee conservation strategy. The strategy was developed through a collaborative process led by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, working with Buglife. MORE
