In a new initiative intended to support bee populations and help them thrive, families across the UK are set to plant around 15 million wildflower seeds in the upcoming weeks. The action will help create a bee-friendly environment and ideally encourage bees to reproduce and grow.

According to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, 97 percent of the UK’s wildflower meadows have disappeared in the last 80 years. This has left bees with less to eat, leading to a decline in their populations. Because bees are responsible for helping plants grow, pollination, making honey, and other activities vital to a healthy environment.

So people are taking action. The Backyard Nature campaign, which is a project spearheaded by a group of young activists from Liverpool, seeks to help stop the decline of bee populations in the UK. The project was launched by Semble, which is a platform for community projects.

“At its core, Backyard Nature is about inspiring young environmentalists to get their hands dirty and start to engage directly with accessible nature activities,” said co-founder of Semble, Mark Shearer. “Having thousands of ‘Backyard Nature Guardians’ come together to plant 15 million wildflower seeds will create a real environmental impact across the UK.”

Seedballs were distributed to families from branches of Iceland supermarket and The Food Warehouse. Other non-profits organizations such as the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, The National Trust, The Wildlife Trusts, and the World Wildlife Fund are also supporting the project.
