British bees are in trouble
Disease, chemicals and disappearing green spaces have all contributed to their dramatic decline in recent years.
What's it got to do with us?
Bees are vital to so much of British life. They pollinate our food, keep our farms in business and help our gardens, parks and countryside thrive. We may not always see bees working away but we rely on them and other insects to pollinate most of our fruit and vegetables.
Without bees, food prices would rise because pollinating crops in other ways would cost farmers over £1.8 billion a year.
Please ask David Cameron to help save bees.
