A Pollinator Strategy for Scotland 2017 - 2027

The Pollinator Strategy for Scotland was launched on 26 July 2017 by Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, at The Hidden Gardens, Tramway, Glasgow.

The Pollinator Strategy for Scotland 2017-2027  PDF document   and its accompanying Implementation Plan  PDF document   set out how Scotland can continue to be a place where pollinators thrive, along with actions that are needed to help achieve that objective. The associated Technical Annex  PDF document sets out the available evidence relating to our main pollinators (honey bee, bumble bees, solitary bees and hoverflies) and the threats that affect them and other pollinating insects. In addition there is a list of useful Information and advice resources  PDF document   which provides links to further details including on species and how to get involved in management and identification.

The launch of this Strategy also presents us with an opportunity to remind you of our highly popular film 'Biodiversity Begins with a B' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_otglflQw4. This is a darkly comical look at the importance of bees to our natural environment and encourages people to take a few simple actions to help support our bees.
