Bees and pollinators have been declining in Ireland and other countries for decades - as a result of mono-agriculture, pollution, climate change and disease, and this decline comes at a huge cost to many parts of the natural world that we take for granted.
The All Ireland Pollinator Plan (AIPP), set up by Úna Fitzpatrick and Jane Stout, is a rare environmental success, reversing pollinator decline by mobilizing a citizen's army of gardeners, farmers, community and sports groups, councils and other land owners to become pollinator friendly, protecting pollinators, and the lives of future generations. As Úna states in Plean Bee, 'the beauty of the plan is that we're not asking 'anybody' to solve this problem, we're asking 'everybody' to get involved, and if everybody took small actions, then together we would create a better world for pollinators, and for us all.'
