Short-haired bumblebee wild flower management advice

By Dr Nikki Gammans, Short-haired bumblebee Project Manager

Giving advice on flower rich habitat creation, management and maintenance is an important part of all our conservation projects. For the short-haired bumblebee project, we work with approximately 70 farmers and 25 landowners; to date we have given advice on over 1,200 hectares in the Romney Marsh and Dungeness area of Kent and East Sussex. We continue to manage and maintain some of our own habitat with the help of volunteers.
