We are Conservation Connection (a group of your own local conservation and wildlife enthusiasts and experts) and we want you to join our New Forest Big Bee Rescue this spring, a huge joint effort to make our area a wonderful place for our bees to live and thrive. We even have Jimmy Doherty’s personal endorsement for our project – his Channel 4 TV series, Jimmy’s Big Bee Rescue, was our inspiration.
“I am delighted to hear about Conservation Connection’s Big Bee Rescue in the New Forest. I urge all residents and businesses, adults and children, to get involved and tell family, friends and workmates about it. I hope everyone will take up the challenge to get planting bee-friendly flowers and creating a linking network of habitats to help bees and other important pollinators survive and thrive. I very much look forward to hearing how the project progresses and seeing the results. Good luck!” Jimmy Doherty
