Take the Edinburgh Pollinator Pledge
Insects, especially bees, flies, moths, butterflies and beetles, are the most important pollinators, and are responsible for fertilising many plants. We rely on pollination to create Edinburgh’s beautiful landscapes and produce many of the crops we rely on. Our city would not be the same without them so you. Sign up to the Edinburgh Pollinator Pledge today and play your part.
There are over 160,000 gardens in Edinburgh and these could form part of a massive network for pollinators. Gardens can be excellent places for pollinators but the quality varies enormously. Research into urban pollinators shows there are some simple actions anyone with access to a garden or greenspace can take.
