The SOS for Honeybees campaign was launched after a resolution calling on the Government to increase funding for research into bee health was passed at the 2009 AGM.

The decline of honey bees represents a major loss in biodiversity as honey bees are not only responsible for producing honey, but play a vital role in pollinating plants. Approximately a third of our human diet is directly dependent on bees, making them central to our existence.

Honey bees are threatened by pests and diseases for which treatments are not fully understood or are ineffective. Compounded with a 30% loss over the previous winter, such declines amount to a major threat to biodiversity, not just for bees but for the many species of plants they help to pollinate.
