Help the Shrill carder bee

Published: 02 February 2010

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust is hoping to win funding for a fantastic project to restore bumblebee habitat along the Pembrokeshire coast.

The Trust wants to create a wildflower-rich habitat to support rare bumblebees along a new 10km path in the Pembrokeshire National Park. By connecting key sites, this attractive route through spectacular scenery will help prevent the national extinction of the Shrill carder bee as well as providing habitat for a wide range of other invertebrates and birds.

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust project is one of six being considered for funding by the EOG Association for Conservation. The winning project will be decided by the votes of visitors to the 'Live For The Outdoors' website and readers of Trail Magazine.

Voting for the project is quick and easy and can be done on the 'Live For The Outdoors' website.
