People for Bees

The IWT are supporters of the All Ireland Pollinator Plan and we are delighted to have launched our People for Bees project this summer. The project will see us deliver training on bee identification, bumblebee monitoring, and bee friendly habitat creation to community groups and members of the public in every province of Ireland. This training includes practical outdoor sessions where participants practice skills in the field, such as bee identification and biodiversity record taking.

With the new skills learnt through this programme, participating groups have the knowledge and confidence to start carrying out bee population monitoring and habitat creation in their communities, thus completing two of the objectives of the All Ireland Pollinator Plan - "Making Ireland more pollinator friendly" and "Bee population monitoring".
