It now has over 6,000 members and works with the public, farmers and land managers right across the UK to prevent further declines and look after bumblebee populations for future generations. The public can vote for BBCT by calling 0844 686 1189 or going online to

~ Thanks everyone~ don't forget to tell your grandchildren and your friends as this is a national vote and everyone will count!
In my opinion the most serious threat to our well being after rising world sea temperatures (ie global warming )is the decline in our bee population~ we can't let this continue and expect to have all the food the world needs~
