The bumblebee is close to my heart and even appears in a tattoo on my shoulder so please take a look at the latest video from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Lots of celebrities (including Ben Fogle, Valentine Warner and Melissa Joan Hart) have joined in to help create the video and to tell us why it's important that we care.
Each celebrity was asked why they feel the bumblebee is so important to society and to add their voices to encourage public support of the need to save this dramatically declining creature.
Two species are now extinct and others have declined due to the removal of flowers (we have a good old-fashioned flower boarder in the garden to encourage all types of insects). Except slugs - just don't understand the point of them. How bee friendly is your garden?
