Gove announces £600,000 bee research fund

Pollinator habitats are to be mapped to identify where new habitats would provide the greatest benefit for bees, wasps, beetles, butterflies, moths and hoverflies.

Environment secretary Michael Gove launched a £600,000 fund to support this work, which the government hopes will boost the number of pollinator-friendly landscapes and protect the health of pollinators.

The project will involve partnering with organisations such as Natural England, Buglife, the Wildlife Trusts and other bodies working on habitat mapping and the conservation of pollinators.
