Welcome to Bucks Buzzing, and your chance to help the insect pollinators that help all of us.
Pollinators come in a range of shapes and sizes from bumblebees to butterflies, moths, hoverflies, and of course, honey bees.
We depend on pollinators for much of our food including apples, pears, strawberries, plums, peas, beans, and for other important plants like wildflowers.
But our pollinators are falling in numbers and are in severe decline across Buckinghamshire and nationally.
You can help!
Encouraging more pollinators is something everyone can do. Can you grow some wildflowers in your patch, leave wild plants to flower, improve a hedgerow, dig a pond or create places for insects to live?
For ideas of what you can do, download the Bucks Buzzing Poster, check out the Resources and Supporters section, or find inspiration from our Case Studies. You can also submit the details of your own project, to let us know how you are getting on and to inspire others.

To help you get your patch buzzing, we’re giving wildflower seeds to residents and organisations of Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes.
