Pollinator Strategy for Scotland Launched

Earlier this week Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform launched The Pollinator Strategy for Scotland 2017-2027

The strategy was prepared by Scottish Natural Heritage for Scottish Government in partnership with an editorial board comprising Bee Farmers Association, Buglife, Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, LINK, National Farmers Union Scotland, Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture and Scottish Lands & Estates, led by Scottish Natural Heritage.

The Strategy and its accompanying Implementation Plan set out how Scotland can continue to be a place where pollinators thrive, along with actions that are needed to help achieve that objective. The associated Technical Annex sets out the available evidence relating to our main pollinators (honey bee, bumble bees, solitary bees and hoverflies) and the threats that affect them and other pollinating insects. In addition there is a list of useful Information and Advice Resources which provides links to further details including on species and how to get involved in management and identification.
