Upcoming Event: Why? Bee Cause! #Manchester Weds 20th Feb 6.30pm #biodiversity #campaigning @ManchesterFoE

You’d think that our species would understand that it’s not going to have much of a future if we wipe out the species which pollinate our crops. Apparently not. Some of the people making the decisions on behalf of our species are a bit dim sometimes*, and need a bit of help…

“As you may have read in the media and through FOE, things are buzzing on the bee campaign with many MPs backing Friends of the Earth’s call for a National Bee Action Plan and several high street companies banning neo-nicotinoids from their pesticide range.
“To keep the momentum going the group are holding a meeting this Wednesday to update people on this year’s plan for the campaign and to start organising for stalls and hopefully a bee friendly wild flower meadow.
“We will be building a bee costume and making bee ‘hotels’ as well as looking at the new bee resources available from FOE this year.
“If you would like to find out more and get involved please join us!”

* Or perhaps a bit greedier than is in their own long-term self-interest. A debate to be had in the pub after doing something useful, perhaps?
