Registered Charity Number 1115634 (England & Wales) & SC042830 (Scotland)

Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers. In the last 80 years, our bumblebee populations have crashed dramatically, with two species becoming nationally extinct and several other species declining.

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established to address the serious concerns about the plight of the bumblebee through practical conservation work and latest scientific research. We have a vision to create a world where bumblebees are thriving and valued.

Gill Perkins CEO said "We are passionate about saving bumblebees and we believe that the best way to do this is to be guided by the latest bumblebee and pollination science. Through our projects, outreach, partnerships and members we can truly work together to inspire people to take action for bumblebees"
