We believe that supporting our environment starts at our own front door
That’s why we’re working with Plan Bee, who have given us the chance to adopt two bee colonies that we’ll look after on site at FFØR HQ!
This means we are supporting 100,000 new pollinators and doing our bit to halt the global decline of the honeybee, who are crucial to our ecosystem and keep our planet spinning.
In addition, we’ll be creating our very own wildflower meadow that will provide them with the habitat they so crucially need.
Making a B-Line
By planting our wildflower meadow, we are making a direct contribution to the B-Lines Initiative, a UK wide network of linear pathways developed by Buglife.
These pathways run through our countryside and towns up and down the country, and are crucial in helping to give our insect pollinators the space they need to move around more easily.
Buglife are a dedicated organisation, whose goal is to end the worrying decline in pollinator species across the UK and to enhance their natural habitats. Our bees, butterflies and hoverflies have all suffered badly over the last few decades due to changes in land use and as a result of modern farming methods, urban spread and new transport links.
So by planting our own wildflower meadow, we are helping the B-Lines Initiative aims to substantially increase the area of permanent wildflower-rich habitats in the UK, and in turn we are supporting other insect pollinators and our wildlife.
