Volunteers are vital to our work at the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
With your help we can spread our message about the importance of bumblebees and how to help their survival to everyone across the UK. It doesn’t matter how much you already know about bees because there are opportunities to learn and we have roles to suit every level of expertise. By volunteering for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust you would also be making a positive contribution to the conservation of bumblebees, wildflowers and the many other parts of our natural world that depend on bees.
