For their September Online Wildlife Exchange Session Record LRC are delighted to be joined by Rachel Richards, B-Lines Officer for Buglife.
Our wild pollinators are in trouble with, for example, half of our bumblebee species and two thirds of our moth species being in decline. As well as being a vital component of healthy ecosystems, it is thought that one out of every three mouthfuls of food we eat depends on pollinators! B-lines is a innovative solution to help reverse the decline. These ‘insect pathways’ aim to link up wildlife areas and provide vital new habitat.
Rachel will be filling us in on the vital role played by pollinators, the problems they are facing and how B-lines is helping to tackle these. We’ll learn about how the team went about mapping the ‘B-lines’ and crucially find out how we can all get involved by creating, managing and restoring habitats in our gardens, green spaces and beyond.
There will be plenty of time to ask questions and engage in discussion after the talk.
The event is hosted on Zoom which is free to use in this context. You will receive a link to the session when you book your place. Only 1 ticket is needed per household (as long as you all watch through the same device).
