B-Lines is a landscape scale initiative to enhance declining pollinator populations by connecting up the best remaining wildflower-rich habitats through the creation or restoration of wildflower habitats. This partnership project aims to identify 3km corridors within which wildflower habitat restoration and creation can be focused and co-ordinated to maximise gains for pollinators across the UK. The B-lines network for the East of England region has now been finalised and is available to our partner organisations as part of our data provision service.
