Wex Bee Aware is a new Wexford County Council wide initiative to raise awareness and give practical help and advice on creating a bee friendly environment in our County.
Bees are declining in Ireland for two main reasons. The first and most important reason is habitat loss. The declining habitat of most importance to bees is flower rich grassland. The second reason is fragmentation of the habitats that remain. Wex Bee Aware aims to reverse the decline of our bees and there are many ways in which we can all become involved.
The following links will give all sectors of our community help to make small changes to increase the bee populations in Wexford.
Should you need any further information, please contact Sonia Hunt on 053 9196408 or email WexBeeAware@wexfordcoco.ie.
Please take a minute to watch this short animated video outlining the problems our bees face today in Ireland.
