Insect Week returns in 2022

Polli:Nation Survey

The Polli:Nation survey is a large-scale national survey that will provide answers to important research questions about the health and status of pollinating insects across the UK.

You can contribute to this research by becoming a citizen scientist and surveying your local patch (school grounds, park or garden) for pollinators.

The website has activity guides, fact sheets and identification guides for school and home.
