Pollinating The Peak

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust email of 5 November 2021 talks among other things about the project ‘Pollinating the Peak’.

The news is that the project has been awarded the 2021 National Lottery Project of the Year.

The award was presented to Trust staff and volunteers on Wednesday by BBC Autumnwatch presenter Michaela Strachan. And it was given in recognition of the project’s work in inspiring and educating communities, schools, and over 20,000 individuals about bumblebees.

Pollinating the Peak will receive a £3,000 cash prize, along with an iconic National Lottery Awards trophy.

The project has worked to secure the future of the Bilberry bumblebee, a Peak District priority species, and other local bumblebees by improving habitat conditions and monitoring bumblebee populations.
