Get Bristol Buzzing!

The Get Bristol Buzzing website is now being hosted by the Avon Wildlife Trust within the new My Wild City project website. All further updates about Get Bristol Buzzing will be posted on the new website.

In 2014 seven organisations formed the Greater Bristol Pollinator Network to plan a joined-up approach to pollinator conservation in the Greater Bristol urban area. Together we have been developing plans for a Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy and the Get Bristol Buzzing initiative to unite organisations and individuals across the city in working together towards shared aims and actions.

To find out why bees and other pollinating insects are so important take a look at this animation commissioned by Defra.

Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy

We have developed a local Pollinator Strategy for the Greater Bristol urban area and invited views on a draft version via a public consultation. The final version of the Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy was launched on 25th March 2015 at the first Bristol Pollinator Forum meeting. You can download a copy of the strategy document from this link Greater Bristol Pollinator Strategy (PDF, 2,424kB)
