The March of the Beekeepers

The March of the Beekeepers

On April the 26th, EJF joined forces with Avaaz, Buglife - The Invertebrate Conservation Trust, Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland, Greenpeace UK, Pesticide Action Network - UK, RSPB, Soil Association and 38 Degrees for the March of the Beekeepers, a demonstration on Parliament Square against bee-harming pesticides.



We interviewed Grant Smith - Menter for London Allotments and coordinator of several bee related community projects to find out how sustainable food projects can assist in providing a healthy future for UK pollinators.


Members of the Bee Coalition today (Friday 18 July) welcome the Government’s public ‘Call to Action’ to help reverse the decline of bees and other pollinating insects by helping meet their needs for food and a home. The call comes ahead of the Government launching its final National Pollinator Strategy in autumn this year.


Members of The Bee Coalition today appeal to the new Environment Secretary, Liz Truss MP to step up efforts to address pollinator issues.
