5. Helping our most threatened bumblebee
The next in our How-to-guide series is on protecting rare pollinators and identifies actions to help the endangered Great Yellow Bumblebee. Unfortunately, this bumblebee is on the verge of extinction, with the Mullet Peninsula in Mayo now it's most important remaining location. The guideline document will be officially launched in early October at an event organised by Mayo County Council. You’ll be able to download it from www.pollinators.ie then.
