Bees provide us with every third mouthful of food we eat - it is estimated that 84% of all crops and 80% of wildflowers depend on insect pollination.
It’s no secret however that many pollinators are facing threats; the loss of habitat and the use of chemicals have been linked to declining numbers. This is bad news but there are ways to help them...
Thanks to Yorkshire Wildlife Trust you can discover more about our incredible bees and how we can save them by reading their blog here.

Artists for Painted Dogs and other Wildlife
British Wildlife by British Artists is a collaborative online exhibition of 27 top renowned UK wildlife artists raising funds for four Wildlife Trusts - including us! The exhibition includes painting, sculpture, woodwork, felt making, jewellery and printmaking.
Three Yorkshire artists are exhibiting – Mikaela Bartlett, David Mayne and Tom Howdle (TimberCulture). Artists are donating 50% or more of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork (full details on the website). The exhibition will celebrate the diverse flora, fauna and landscapes of the beauty of the British Isles.
With charities and artists still battling very challenging times due to the global pandemic, this exhibition is delighted to be raising funds for us. And we are so pleased to have them on board! The art fundraiser is open for previews now and opens for sales from tomorrow, 16th April, until 9th May. View the exhibition here.
