  • One third of our 98 wild bee species are threatened with extinction from the island of Ireland. In publishing the first All-Ireland Pollinator Plan in 2015, Ireland became one of the first countries in Europe to address this issue – in order to ensure the sustainability of our food, avoid additional economic impacts on agriculture, and protect the health of the environment. The first phase of the Plan has been very successful and has led to positive changes across all sectors. A new version has just been launched for 2021-2025. Learn about the Plan, the challenges pollinators face, and how we can all help. Lots of small actions, together, make a big difference.
