Dear Member,

This page has been specially created for all of those who came along to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust's Members' Day in July 2014. It contains links to videos of each of the talks, and to more information about the topics discussed during the day. We would like to thank you all for attending, and for supporting BBCT in our work to help the UK's bumblebees.

Many of you are already helping us through volunteering, and it was lovely to meet you in person. If you aren't already registered as a volunteer but would like to do so, please click here to find out more. Registered volunteers have access to our materials, including leaflets and copies of our 'Plight of the bumblebee' presentation which have been narrated and come with notes to help you present it.

Richard's talk will hopefully have inspired some of you to become BeeWalkers. BeeWalk helps us to gather valuable scientific information, and the more data we have, the stronger it is. Please visit for more information.

“Bumblebees are lovely little creatures - their bright stripes and gentle buzz bring colour and sound to our summer gardens. They are also very important because they pollinate our wildflowers and crops. Sadly things aren't going well and some species are threatened with extinction.
I'm really concerned by these declines and I'm pleased to support the work of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust."
