Get busy - get involved!

There are many opportunities for you to get involved and help pollinators thrive in your area.

Explore the list below to find projects, activities and resources to get you busy:

Inverclyde Pollinator Corridor

Duration
05:02

In Greenock an enthusiastic local group called ‘Inverclydebuzz’ has sprung up to turn plots of under-used or derelict sites into wildlife gardens with lots of wildflowers and community involvement. These sites offer vital food and shelter to our bees and butterflies, as well as make the local area more attractive for people to enjoy.

Make a pollinator pledge

A pollinator pledge is a promise to help pollinators such as bees, hoverflies, wasps and moths thrive in your local area, in whatever way you can.  

Things you can do:

  • grow pollinator friendly plants, trees and shrubs
  • create habitats to provide nesting and shelter opportunities
  • leave areas of grass unmown, or reduce the number of cuts
  • encourage others to make a pollinator pledge

Here are some examples of pledges:

OPAL
Edinburgh living landscapes
Gillingham Town Council
