The project started as a citizen science study to test the efficacy of various “bee hotel” designs. It was run as part of the Buzz Club at the University of Sussex, the citizen scientists who took part in the original study were from all across the UK.
Now it has evolved into a science communication platform, mostly using the established Twitter community. We want to raise awareness of the insect decline we are seeing globally, our work predominantly focuses on the plight of solitary bees in the UK.
