Helping our pollinators

Scotland’s pollinators are a vital part of our biodiversity. Species such as bees and hoverflies are a familiar sight in our gardens, parks and countryside and they play a crucial role in our food and farming industries, as well as contributing to our enjoyment of the outdoors and our health and well-being.

But our wild pollinators are in trouble and facing pressures such as habitat fragmentation, changes in land use, disease, pesticides and climate change - they need our help.

The Pollinator Strategy for Scotland 2017-2027, and the accompanying Implementation Plan, set out how we can make Scotland a place where pollinators can thrive and the actions we need to take to make Scotland more pollinator friendly.
