What are Friends of the Earth groups doing to help bees?
Local Friends of the Earth groups take action for bees and call on the Government to protect them from toxic pesticides.
Here are some of the highlights...
With the help of local residents, schoolchildren and councillors, Brighton & Hove Friends of the Earth planted a new Bee World. They used 2,000 wildflowers to turn a grass verge into a haven for the city's bees.
In Kirkham the Central Lancashire group teamed up with a local school and church to create a Bee World so big that a tractor had to prepare the site.
Alongside planting a wildflower meadow the group is calling for schools to have easier access to solar panels. Mark Menzies MP came along to support both bees and schools run on sun.
Staff at the B&Q store in Cwmbran joined Torfaen Friends of the Earth on a stall.
And staff at the Lush store in Bromley got in on the act too. They dressed for the occasion and helped Bromley Friends of the Earth raise the profile of bees.
Hackney & Tower Hamlets Friends of the Earth linked up with Green Kite Ceilidh Band for an evening of music and merriment. With a side order of bees.
The Lambeth group rallied support at a festival in Dulwich.
Meanwhile there were various sightings of giant bees. This one in Chester was joined by a beekeeper.
And one was even spotted buzzing around the Isle of Man.
Inspired by the Bee Cause the new coordinators of Cheltenham Friends of the Earth are holding a relaunch party.
