TBS: Urban Pollinator

Are you interested in getting outside in the sunshine and helping us increase our records of pollinators? Do you own a camera or camera phone? If so, come and join us for a training and information evening for a new project!

Increasing urbanisation is greatly affecting our pollinators and we are aiming to collect data on the role urban areas are playing in supporting these important invertebrates.
