Collaborative project to help save the UK's declining pollinators launched

The University of Stirling is working with Polli:Nation, a UK-wide biodiversity project, to get schools across Britain to help save and protect the dwindling pollinating insect population by transforming their grounds and community spaces.

The £1.4million Polli:Nation project, developed by the charity Learning through Landscapes and sector partners, will equip children and local communities with the tools and skills to help scientists build a picture of the state and potential of habitats for pollinators. Grounds for Learning, the Scottish wing of Learning through Landscapes, based in Stirling University Innovation Park, helps oversee the project in Scotland.
