Buglife's B- Lines initiative - aimed at creating habitat corridors for pollinators across the country - has recently expanded to cover the East of England. Read the latest update from Buglife here!
Buglife and partners have mapped B-Lines for a large part of the East of England and beyond in 2016, including Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. This means that Buglife is now working to create networks of wildflower-rich habitats from the Humber down to the Thames Estuary, and from the Norfolk Broads across to the edge of the Cotswolds.
Buglife held workshops in 2016 to engage stakeholders in mapping B-Lines across the East of England, which were attended by partner organisations across the region, including Essex Wildlife Trust. Buglife is now looking to work with partners and landowners across the region to deliver wildflower-rich habitats to help make the region more pollinator-friendly. This work has added significantly to the national B-Lines network and Buglife now needs help from as many people as possible to help deliver for pollinators. If you or your organisation is interested in helping Buglife to develop B-Lines in any of these new areas, visit the Buglife website for more information.
