With only 25 species remaining in the UK, the decline is dramatic. The UK now has half the species of just 60 years ago. We’ve recently lost at least three species to extinction, and – with another seven now on the UK Priority Species list – more may follow in the near future.
Bumblebees might all look the same at first glance. But you can get an identification guide at the Save the Wee Bees web page.
