Support us

We can’t help Britain’s bumblebees without your help! The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is a small, independent charity that relies on the generous support of the public.  Please help us to continue to add much needed flowers to Britain’s landscape.

We work hard to create the habitats and to encourage the bee-friendly gardening that our wild pollinators need to survive. There are many ways that you can support our work:

“Bumblebees are one of the most endearing insect visitors to any garden. Their furry, colourful bodies and clumsy flight always raise a smile, but they also do an essential job. Without their pollination services many flowers would produce no seeds, and fruit and vegetable yields would suffer.”
