“This strategy sets out a 10 year plan to help pollinating insects survive and thrive.
Our pollinators are vital for food production and biodiversity and they face a range of pressures from habitat loss to pests and diseases. The strategy includes information on the current evidence, and policy actions to support and protect the many pollinating insects which contribute to our food production and the diversity of our environment. It also explains what research is planned to find out more about the current state of our pollinators and how we can protect them.
Pollinating insects include many different species of bees and other insects such as hoverflies, beetles, flies, butterflies and moths”.
