Friends of the Bees

Together, we can make the world a better place for pollinators!

- by creating more pollinator-friendly habitat
- by discouraging the use of 'pesticides'
- by planting and encouraging native, flowering plants
- by encouraging beekeepers to adopt more 'nature-friendly' methods
- by promoting the use of native, or near-native bees and discouraging imports



Help us support essential pollinators

We are a small charity with no paid staff and low overheads, trying to do a lot with a little. Even a small amount every month from the many who support our aims will make a big difference.

Please help support our work with a regular donation, however small.

Please use this button to make a regular or one-off donation using PayPal or any major credit card.

PLEASE NOTE: As of March 31st 2017, Friends of the Bees will cease to offer Public Liability Insurance (PLI) to members. While the cover does offer good value for money, the new policy has weaknesses that could result in a liability to us under certain circumstances.

We hope you will continue to support our work, either by maintaining your membership, or by making a regular donation, if possible.
