Bee crisis: UK government launches ‘urgent’ review

Damian Carrington at the Guardian tells us about an ‘urgent’ review of bee policy here in Britain. Lord Rupert de Mauley, minister at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), has announced ‘an urgent and comprehensive review of current policy, evidence and civil society action on pollinators to identify what needs to be done to integrate and step up our approach.’

What will this review find? What will those in power do for our much-needed bees? I’ll let you know when I see more news.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
