Giant bees descended on Downing Street to sting the government into delivering a Bee Action Plan, as part of Friends of the Earth’s Bee Cause campaign. They delivered over 64,000 demands from UK residents, gathered by Friends of the Earth and Garden Organic.
The event comes as pressure mounts on the Government to act on bee decline. Some 89 MPs from across the political parties have called on the Prime Minister to introduce a Bee Action Plan and 125 attended an event on 15 January to express their concern about falling bee numbers.
It also coincides with the Advisory Committee on Pesticides discussion on neonicotinoid pesticides, widely believed to be a contributing factor to bee decline.
